    Windows update and CSS bug fixes?

    When you use Windows update, does it update your IE6 browser rendering bugs?

    I formatted my computer and updated everything I needed to, but I didn't get to installing IE7 just yet.

    I know for a fact that the CSS float + overflow bug in IE6 doesn't work like it does in IE7 or FF.

    Code:
    #outer { width:600px; background:red; overflow:auto; }
    #one { width:300px; float:left; height:300px; background:green; }
    #two { overflow:auto; height:500; background:blue; }
    
    <div id="outer">
    <div id="one"></div>
    <div id="two"></div>
    </div>
    That should have three colors showing in FF or IE7. Before, I noticed that IE didn't render this, but now with all the updates from Windows update, it works like it should.

    So I am just asking that does Windows Update fix these issues, because, if so, it will become even more difficult to get IE6 "un-updated" browsers to work properly.
    I can't believe I ate the whole thing

    As far as I'm aware operating system updates won't update the browser unless there's a security risk so I can't imagine any of the older Internet Explorer browsers updating the rendering of the engine.

    Not sure what the situation is with IE7 though but as far as I'm aware they've not updated any of the rendering since it was released but could be wrong.

    It would be interesting if Microsoft was able to release a global update to IE7, for example and make it standards-compliant. Imagine that!
