Microsoft to begin automatic Internet Explorer upgrades in 2012

In January 2012, Microsoft will begin installing the latest version of Internet Explorer on Windows PCs automatically, via Windows Update.

Automatic browser updates will begin rolling out worldwide in Australia and Brazil and will gradually scale up to additional countries and continents over time....

Probably preparation for IDN@IDN.com as Outlook sits on top of IE.

Won't this only apply though if you have set your Windows to allow automatic updates ??
