How to Disable Automatic Delivery of Internet Explorer 7
To disable automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 7.0 to your computers via WSUS or Windows Updates you need to create a registry record , if you are unfamiliar with registry editing I recommend you to use the toolkit provided by Microsoft, that you can find in this article.
Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSetup7.0
Key value name: DoNotAllowIE70
If you don’t give any value to DoNotAllowIE70 key or you set it to 0 (zero) it won’t prevent automatic installation of IE70, to prevent automatic installations of IE70 you should set it to 1 (one). It will be valid till you change it. But it won’t prevent you to install IE70 manually or by other deployment methods like SMS.
