    “An update to allow future updates” — haha isn’t that classic Microsoft. In their defense, (sort of) I am sick of Apple constantly asking me if I want to install Quicktime in addition to iTunes on my PC.

    I’m not sure why your Twitter urls are going through IE7 now, but that red faced guy — don’t I recognize him from the MSN instant messenger program? I love those faces…so MS isn’t ALL bad :)

    Red-face comes from Windows Live Writer, the one and only MS client app I like, but I guess they use the same in all “live” apps :-)

    I had the same problem with Excel, some links would start my default browser while others would start IE. Since I’m on Win7 I solved the problem by uninstalling IE… ;-)
