Block IE 8
Hello:

I need to block my users from installing IE 8. When IE 7 first came out
there was a gpo to block it. I searched but couldn't find such a thing for
IE 8. Does anyone know if they have one?

Harrison

So why do your *users* have permission to install any software? They
should be using limited accounts to prevent them from installing
software. If they have admin accounts then the host is theirs to
control, not you.

IE8 is still in beta. When IE8 Final is released, we expect a "blocker" to
become available, too.

IE8: What's after Beta 2?
["We will release one more public update of IE8 in the first quarter
of
2009, and then follow that up with the final release."]

NB: There were at least three (3) IE7 Release Candidates before IE7
Final
was released about two years ago so YMMV.
