    You upgraded, not updated, to Win7 (which includes IE8 by default, unless
    you happen to reside in certain EU countries).

    What browser did you use to post here?

    Are you running Win7 64-bit?

    Is IE8 enabled (turned on) in Windows Features?

    Why not take a real leap and try Linux instead? <eg>

    Blame the European Union if your European copy of Windows has IE8 omitted.
    Ain't it wonderful to be under the dictatorial thumb of a world gov't? They
    know what's good for you, yeah. You think Microsoft is not going to
    retailitate for the EU levying fines against them?

    I don't know if this ever came to pass because I don't have any European
    versions of Windows 7 (and only have a trial version to test inside a
    virtual machine).

    Don't know if Microsoft got the ballot screen implement in the EU version of
    Windows 7 by the time of its release. Windows 7 got released in Oct 2009
    but this article for the proposed ballot choice of web browser is dated in
    Nov 2009.
