[X-post to IE General]
You can install IE7 in WinXP SP3 but it won't be offered by Windows Update
Required reading IMHO before installing IE7:
Sandi's Installation Tips for IE7 <= Steps #1-8, #10 & #11; take note of
#12, then STOP!
(ignore any references to Vista)
IE7 will not be offered via Windows Update. You can download the installer
Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it. Then double-click on the
saved file when you're ready to install IE7.
Make *certain* that you check in at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
immediately after installing IE7, select the CUSTOM option & scan. Install
any critical security updates offered. If Optional Updates category offers
Root Certificates update, install it to take full advantage of IE7's
NB: DO NOT INSTALL IE8! Uncheck it then "hide" it.
