Do I let pc install IE7 or not?

  SB23 13:31 23 Nov 2006

I've just had a polite message come up on my screen to say that IE7 is ready to install.
For the moment I have said to remind me later, but with all the issues I've heard and read about do I let it install or not?
I really don't know what to do.

I`ve not allowed it to install until I`m happy that all possible bugs have been ironed out.

I agree with Meshuga.

There do seem to be a high number of threads on this reporting problems.

Installation of IE7 has been compared to XP SP2 - for some (such as me) it was seamless, for others it caused all manner of problems.

I still think the jury's out on IE7.

Well all the things that you heard and seen about it, Should meen that you should know the proper way to install it, So you should not have any problems,

If you have problems you can uninstall it via Add or Remove programs and you will be reverted to IE6.

Or you can prevent it from installing click here

Up to you really!

I also agree with Meshuga. I think that the fact that Microsoft have been forced to create this patch just about says it all.

Pamy, lol.

VoG™, the blocker toolkit is asking where to go. Where do I install it? as I've decided to hang on for a while and not to install IE7.
