No matter what type of update ("High Priority", "Optional, Software",
"Optional, Hardware") - the choice whether or not to install can be yours
whether or not to install.
Internet Explorer - no matter your update settings - the choice is yours
whether or not to install. You could still run Internet Explorer 6 on
WIndows XP if you so desired and did not upgrade to Internet Explorer 7
before upgrading to Service Pack 3 for Windows XP or were willing to
uninstall enough to get back to it.
