Installing Microsoft Internet Explorer 7: best practices

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 19-Oct-2006 13:18

If you are about to download the new Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, it's best to follow some good advice.
Installing Internet Explorer 7
First and most important! Be aware of phishing scams. Microsoft is not sending an e-mail with links. The official Internet Explorer 7 download is hosted by Microsoft and you should download only from there. If you receive an e-mail with a link, delete it!

Next, visit the Spyware Sucks blog and read the post IE7 Gold has gone live. You will find a very good list of things to do before, during and after the install of this update.

Remember, you don't have to install it now, but it will be pushed to all Windows PCs through Windows Update sometime soon. Companies will be able to disable the automatic update, check with your IT departments.
