Internet Explorer Yesterday, Microsoft dropped a bomb by announcing that all versions of Windows 7 released in Europe would ship without Internet Explorer pre-installed. This was in answer to the EU antitrust investigation currently under way regarding possible illegal bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows. The first reactions to this news are coming in, with Opera and the EU both lamenting the move.

Sorry, but I had to mod you down.

IE8 is removed from my Win7 system. typing "iexplore.exe" in the run box gives an error.

While it stayed in XP after "uninstalling", this is about Windows 7.

Also, XP does say it just removes the icon.

I don't remember about Vista, though.
