Microsoft is still pounding nails into the coffin of Internet Explorer 6. They have now made it so that Windows Updates will automatically update (with the correct WU settings, of course) your Internet Explorer. So, those on IE6, the very few, will be updated to the latest version of IE for your OS. For XP users, you’ll jump up to IE8 and for Vista and 7 users, you will be upgraded to Internet Explorer 9. The process will be automatic with no work from the user. All settings from the previous version (homepage, search engine, etc.) will remain the same. The updates begin in January.
