Basically, the EU decided Microsoft was being too much of a monopoly, creating too much competition since these things are already included with Windows.

Personally, I think it's stupid since it's basic knowledge that other browsers exist, and if the person using the computer doesn't know, they're probably better off and happy continuing to use Internet Explorer.
