Re: IE7 in Israel

Now that is interesting.

What you appear to be saying is that you have a US version of XP running a US version of IE7, but have been alerted
to the fact that you don't have a local version of IE7 appropriate to IP allocated by your ISP. Have I got that right?

Well we can conclude that Auto Updates is working in Israel.

It would seem that it may not be the language of the OS that is the key to triggering Auto Updates, but your connection IP address.

It would seem that CD versions are uniquely NOT available in Japanese, Chinese and Korean!

It also begs the question whether warnings about downloading IE7 in areas affect by the Active X problems may have been triggered
by IP addresses in those countries. Perhaps there has been active dissuasion of downloading if you are located in Korea or Japan?
All offers to sell are void.
