IntelliAdmin IE 7 Blocking Tool

By the time Microsoft decides to roll out Internet Explorer (IE) 7, a lot of users may be taken by surprise when they find their current IE 6 browser being automatically upgraded to IE 7 when users run Windows Update. This is, by far, one of the most inconvenience cause if such is going to happen soon. The automatic upgrade would probably make a mess in your registry if you decides to downgrade back to IE 6.

Instead of letting the Windows Update make the decision, why not you (the administrator of your network) make the decision when to deploy IE 7, and which is one of the reasons why Microsoft has released its own IE 7 blocking tool to the Internet. After downloading and running the script, what you will notice is a command line too. All the script does is to alter the Windows registry.

As such, IntelliAdmin has devised a Graphical User Interface (GUI) program which allows user to switch between enabling and disabling of IE 7 installation. Two such programs were developed, one for remote access to Windows system, particularly useful when you are administrating a large network, and the other for local personal computer.

These applications are free to download and are available here:
