    Yes on IE, no for IIS. Which is a little interesting considering that it
    runs using IIS.

    Basically, it's Windows critical updates and security roll-ups that you can
    see using Windows Update, minus driver updates and service packs (service
    packs can be installed using the Software Assurance version of SUS).
