Re: MS are doing Windows Updates for XP to IE7

It seems to me that all you need to do is set Automatic Updates to tell you when new patches are ready and then tell it
to ignore IE7 if you don't want it.

I'm more puzzled as to why they're doing this "out of cycle" instead of on "Patch Tuesday" (or "Black Tuesday", your 
choice).

Hi,

Just got this news :-

       http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-
dyn/content/article/2006/10/28/AR2006102800029.html
Is this a bad thing or a bad bad thing ?

Can it be circumvented ? Do I have to turn off Auto Update and do 
Custom updates via IE ?

Open for comments,

Aaron
