Microsoft Windows

Microsoft have announced that the new version of Internet Explorer – IE7 – will automatically download and install to Windows XP users at the end of this year.

It will be distributed as part of Microsoft’s Windows Update feature, which allows Microsoft to auto-install important security patches and product upgrades to users PC’s.

However, users will be given the option to choose to install IE7 or not.

Anyone who does opt for an install should find their normal bookmarks and folders imported from IE6 to IE7, so as to not lose any data or important user information.
