A Note From GSU IS&T: Do NOT Install IE7

October 26, 2006

On November 1, Microsoft will release Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) for  Windows. At this time, IS&T recommends that you NOT upgrade to IE7.

 We have been working diligently with our web application vendors to  verify compatibility with IE7. Several vendors for major campus-wide  applications have not yet certified their products to work with the  new browser. When these vendors indicate that their products are  certified to work correctly, IS&T will notify the campus community.

 If your computer is set up to receive automatic updates, you should  see a notification when IE7 is available for installation. Simply  choose “Don’t Install” from the available options. You can easily  manually install the software at a later date. Microsoft has  indicated that even those users with “automatic installation” turned  on will have the option of installing IE7.

 Please contact your local support staff or the IS&T Help Center at  404-xxx-xxxx if you have any questions or need additional assistance  with this matter.
