IE 10 has installed as a windows update (Win-7)

Post by VK5PJ » Tue Apr 02, 2013 5:22 pm

Hi,
some of you like me may be surprised to open up IE and see that it is now changed to be IE-10 It would seem the nice people from Microsoft have decided that we all need IE-10 on our PC's. I think mine sneaked in last night (still April 1 in the USA).

Some of the fonts look different and I am betting lots of browser dependant web sites will be broken to varying degree's.

Thats why I've set mine not to automatically update without me giving the OK first.

If it over-rode Chrome as the default browser, now that'd be sneaky :shock:

I notice IE 64bit version has disappeared off my start menu. Looks like IE10 is the only one there now.

Still using Chrome though :D

For those that want to keep automatic updates but not install IE10 just yet, you can use this Microsoft Tool:
