Stop IE8 Rolling out

  • When Microsoft suprises us all with IE8 rolled out under Automatic update, does anyone have a plan in place to prevent it going out with all the other updates.

    We have quite a few clients who cannot have this installed on their systems due to incompatable software.

    Since we haven't had a date when it will be included i hope there is still some time. I did hear the end of April being thrown about.

  • Well, since we use GPO-oriented registry entries to lock down automatic installation and all of our monthly-contract clients' machines are in patch approval policies, we should be able to prevent it by being careful of what we approve, patch-wise.

    That won't stop some knob with local admin priv's from going out and downloading it himself, of course, but...
