I did not apply the blocker for IE7 but as per Microsoft, if the "Internet Explorer 7 Blocker Toolkit" is in placed, it will not expire.
"Once the blocking registry key value is set to its blocked value, automatic delivery of the update will be deactivated permanently as long as the registry key value is not removed or changed."
"I don't see how to uncheck the IE7 install from the rest of the updates"
Did you select "express" or "custom" in Windows Update website? Do you see it in the High-Priority or Optional section of Windows Update website?
As per Microsoft, if you have blocked it before and click "express", the toolkit will prevent in being offered.
If you click "Custom", it will be offered as Optional update only instead of High Priority.
Kindly ensure that the blocker is still in placed by making sure that:
Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\7.0
Key value name: DoNotAllowIE70
has the the 1 as value.
Not sure if I'm posting in the correct forum, but here goes anyway. When IE7 came out, I noticed a lot of 'issues' so I decided to opt out of the auto install, for the time being, per some guidance here about a certain procedure, which I performed. Now, here comes windows updates, and included is the IE7 install. I don't see how to uncheck the IE7 install from the rest of the updates. Will it be stopped per the previous action?

Thanks in advance,
