In your newsreader:
Personally, I'd be remiss to auto-install IE7 on any machine:
Required reading IMHO before installing IE7:
Sandi's Installation Tips <= FOLLOW THESE TIPS TO THE LETTER!
[And I strongly recommend using
installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update. Make *certain* that you
check in at Windows Update immediately after installing IE7 and install any
critical updates offered. If Optional Updates category offers Root
Certificates update, I recommend installing it to take full advantage of
IE7's additional security.]
