I keep hearing that microsoft are going to download something on our computers asking which browser we would like to be the default. Now, what I can't get is whether this will alter anything. I have both FF and IE, with FF the default. I don't want this to change. Does anyone know (a) if there will be a button to get rid of the message; (b) if not and we have to choose a default will any of the other browsers that we also have be deleted? (c) shouldn't they have sent a message first asking if we agree to the download?
either at the time, by selecting it from a list of updates you'll be offered by the Windows update servers, or in advance, if you've selected the option to let Windows download and install updates automatically.
All that's going to happen is that Microsoft will give you the option to select a browser of your choice as a default, rather than making IE the default automatically.
