I haven't had a problem with it. I intentionally let it through. My reasoning being as long as I must have IE on my PC, I want the more secure of the two. IE 7 is less of a security risk than IE 6. I'm on another browser by the way. :thumbsup:

I have a question.

After downloading and clicking on the Toolkit.exe file it generates 4 files.

What am I supposed to do then?

Clicking on the IE70Blocker.cmd file brings up a momentary DOS screen too fast to see what's on it and doesn't change anything in the registry.

I read detailed information on Wilders about 6 weeks ago re IE 7 & its delivery method. It was geared for techs to keep them abreast & enable them to take actions to prevent their clients from receiving IE 7. It would help you for sure. Cute kid! :thumbsup:
