    IE 7 Remote vulnerability

    There is a vulnerability in IE 7 that could allow remote execution of arbitrary code.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....

    There's no problem that I'm aware of with running IE 8 on XP, so I don't know why somebody would still be running seven.

    I agree JPnyc, as the only reason I can think of would be legacy systems?

    IE 8 will run with XP (SP2), Vista and 7 so why not go for it?...........surely there aren't people still running SP1???????????

    IE7 won't run on a 2000 box, so there doesn't seem to be a logical reason? Perhaps HYBR|D can elucidate, as I believe he still uses IE7?

    INCIDENTALLY FOLKS:

    XP SP2 retires in June/July this year so please get SP3

    I think you would be surprised at the number of people still running IE6!

    OK pal.........you just chill out huh?

    To be honest, the only thing I use IE for is updating software, so I didn't know about add-ons

    I tend to use the "Other Browser" that doesn't give you music and singing like ByteWrangler's

    EDIT:

    I think you would be surprised at the number of people still running IE6!
    I do, on Windows 2000, which I still consider to be an excellent OS!
