Microsoft to Push IE 7.0 via Automatic Updates

Microsoft plans to release the final version of IE7 via the Automatic Updates and is listing it as a “high priority” update.  According to eWeek’s article on the IE 7 push, “Users and administrators will be prompted to opt in and accept the IE 7.0 download; it won’t happen automatically without notification, Microsoft officials stressed. Users who have opted to hide access to IE won’t be presented with the download option at all, officials said.  To obtain the IE 7 code, users will be required to validate that they are running a nonpirated version of Windows, via Microsoft’s WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) authentication mechanism.”  For more information on eWeek’s article click here
