I agree with Airbot. It is still there. What it does in all that time, whilst disabling, I have no idea. I takes just as long to enable it again.

Win7 Ultimate x64 on Desktop / Win7 Ultimate x86 on laptop / Win7 x86 Starter on Netbook

It's another option. I have to use it for Microsoft sites, as firefox doesn't display properly sometimes.
I wonder why

I had not realised it, but my computer illiterate wife has just pointed out that this is a feature of XP. See attached.

I for one, will not disable it, as I use it as well as ff and see no reason to disable it.
Ah not impressed with this.... hoping for a new n/vLite type app when this hits retail...

I never use it unless i have to (some ms pages require it for downloads etc..), firefox with the glasser and other addons is far better IMO.
