IE8 and Windows Updates
pI'm using Vista Enterprise 32 bit and I just uninstalled IE8 beta 1 so that
I could install IE8 beta 2 and the process was smooth (besides having had to
uninstall beta 1 manually and the process not being an automatic upgrade but
I guess it is a beta). Subsequent to the install, though, Windows update is
telling me that I should install two important updates which hapen to be
security updates for IE7. I did not receive this prompt in beta 1.

Should I risk installing them and overwriting something installed with IE8
or continue to ignore Windows Updates prompts?
