Special builds of ie7 Chinese Simpl, Japanese etc required urgently

Well, we've missed the boat assuring type-in's from latin languages due to the standard ie7 redirecting keywords typed into the URL bar being redirected to live.com search.

But ie7 isn't in AU mode in China, Japan etc yet.

So we need someone to do a custom build of ie7 for each of the non-latin countries that BY DEFAULT appends .com to a keyword and tries to go to the website.

Once built, we need to get it out there in the wild, by fair means or foul (cough hack) so that as many native users download it before AU kicks in.

Getting domainers in each of those countries to help distribution would be good (putting it on download.com equivalents etc).

I get a fair bit of chinese traffic, so will be able to pop up a download window whenever an ie6 user from China visits one of my sites.

I'm busy at the moment building an extension for Firefox that stops keywords going to Google.

Can someone please volunteer to do these custom builds URGENTLY.
