The other day, I heard something about IE 7.0 now being required for every computer user. Is that true ?? Can Microsoft really do that ??

If you’re an avid Internet Explorer user, you have probably already heard about this, but for those of you who haven’t, I’m here to clear up all the confusion. All of this really isn’t as bad as you think, so just hang tight. Everything’s going to be okay. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

MS announced last week that with its February 12, 2008 Windows updates, an upgrade for Internet Explorer 7 will be included. And yes, that’s whether you like it or not. So, basically, if you’ve been putting off the upgrade, you will soon be forced to install the new version of the IE Web browser. MS is going to be pushing this on just about everyone (businesses included) who has not yet installed IE 7. Now, I know that doesn’t seem quite fair.

When the update comes through to your computer on February 12, 2008, it will be marked as an Update Rollup package. If your computer is set to approve Rollup packages, the update from IE 6 to IE 7 will automatically be installed for you.

Now, if you turn your automatic updates off, you still need to get them for the month of February, so you will need to do it manually. And you can do that right from this Web site. There you can pick and choose what you want to install and that way, you can skip past the one for Internet Explorer 7. Note: Once the February updates are over, don’t forget to turn your automatic updates back on. Otherwise, you might miss out on some really important stuff later on. Also, keep in mind that this update does not pertain to Windows Vista, because IE 7 already automatically comes with that operating system.
