Internet Explorer 7 as High Priority update and the ability to prevent it’s auto-download

The news has come that Internet Explorer 7 will come out as a high priority security update when it’s released later this year. This should mean good things for the folks that are still using IE6 as it will bring quite a few security enhancements. (On a side note, my test of Vista with IE7 failed to display averyjparker.com … other sites hosted on the same server worked, but I got a page not found for that domain. More testing there to come.) Microsoft has noted that not everyone will want all their pcs to automatically update to IE7 and so… They’ll issue a tool to block that update if one chooses.


Of course, in many business environments they’ll likely be a bit more cautious about the update, ESPECIALLY if there’s the use of web based applications that might have problems with a different browser version (or the security policies). It’s good to see them announcing this well in advance so there will be time for people to plan ahead.
