I've just deactivated IE8 (thru 'Turn Windows components on or off') and get this message...
This leads me to believe that there may be more underlying issues with the removal of IE8 for the 'E' release of Windows 7 than is actually being reported...
I've checked Windows Update & that works ok, but as this is my main machine I can only test certain environments momentarily.
Without an actual 'E' release certain functionality cannot yet be tested
Yes there are ways to download an explorer in an 'E' edition but it makes me wonder what CORE system components rely on IE files
Anyone care to add any feedback
