Internet Explorer "I've read many articles about Internet Explorer 7's new security features and coupled with the imminent release of Vista this got me interested. I recall seeing a rather funny screenshot (which I found on the internet), which showed Internet Explorer 6 in Windows XP stuffed full of spyware/toolbars/etc. I wanted to see if IE7 was any better than that screenshot of IE6, how would it cope with a user that simply clicked 'yes/allow/next/accept' to everything that was presented to them. In addition, I wanted to see how the User Account Control reacted to this, and in the end, could I restore IE7 to it's former glory."

Mmmm if Yahoo can survive I wonder what Cool Web Search will do to IE 7.

However, IE7 did try to protect the user and what OS can protect itself against the determined idiot. To quote or probably miss quote Einstein only 2 things are infinite the Universe and Human stupidity and I'm not sure about the former.

If Linux was used by the WOW a cool cursor brigade you think it couldn't also be brought to it's knees? Well I suppose they might forget the root password.
