According to InfoWorld, the next update of IE7 will be automatically downloaded and installed:Microsoft warns businesses of impending autoupdate to IE7. Just thought you might want to know, in case you want to keep IE6 around.
Companies that stuck with IE6 must take action, Microsoft said, or IE7 may be automatically downloaded and installed to their workers’ PCs. Specifically, administrators who have set WSUS to automatically approve Update Rollups will need to disable the auto-approval rule before Feb. 12 to prevent IE7 from infiltrating their infrastructure. After that date, they must synchronize the update package with their WSUS server and then switch the autoapproval rule back on.
