If a choice of browser was made available during setup, then the latest version should be downloaded from an agreed "never to change" URL for each make of browser (or the browser chooser downloads a list of browsers/URLs from MS and uses that to display the list and download from). And, yes, this includes Internet Explorer too, why not? At least this way, they get an up-to-date version with the latest features and security fixes.
