IE7 or not?

My Windows Update is offering me IE7 but I'm not sure I want it. I upgraded before and had problems with it (was getting a lot of unknown system errors).

1. Am I missing out on anything major by staying with IE6?

2. If I don't upgrade how do I tell Windows Update Alert not to remind of it again.

I would not bother.IE8 should be out shortly.Maybe better waiting for that.

I agree with Pineman. You are not secure using IE6

You would definitely be more secure with IE 7 and they have fixed most of the early bugs. The phishing filter occasionally slows things down a bit but not nearly so much as when it first appeared.

Better to leave IE 8 for a while yet, though, I think.
