Do I need Internet Explorer?

  gel 10:16 12 Jul 2008

I get M S downloads automatically,but when I check on the PC Security centre to see if the computer has received all the down loads , the computer automatically raises Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Is it possible to perform the same task using Firefox
I use Firefox more or less exclusively
Thank you

It is my understanding that you DO need IE to obtain windows updates.
