IE 7 Setup: Secure From the Start

...I'd like to share some of the ways setup in IE 7 helps keep you more secure and IE running smoothly.

Prior to installing IE 7, setup runs the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool to clean your system of known malware and help prevent problems installing IE 7 or running it for the first time. If you keep your computer up-to-date using Windows Update, which hopefully everyone does, you will already have the latest version of the cleaner. In that case, setup will re-run the installed version; otherwise, it will download and run the latest version.

Setup also makes sure you have the latest-and-greatest by downloading and installing any available IE updates. In previous versions of IE, users had to install updates after IE installation and anyone who didnít was out-of-date. In IE 7, setup takes care of the updates so you can get right to using IE 7.
