A lot of companys in Europe are thinking of how they are going to block the Browser choice update. One good thing to know is that this only apply to client OS
There are three ways to block it that I know about.
- Don’t allow KB976002 in WSUS.
- Download this ADM file and make a GPO for your computers (thanks to Jonas Sjöstrand ) http://www.compit.se/download/ad/browserchoice.zip
- Script out a reg file to the clients:
Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\BrowserChoice
Value Name: Enabled
Value Type: DWORD
Possible Values: 1 Display browser choice update
0 Do not display browser choice update
If your users get the browser choice update installed on there computers they will get a new icon on the desktop called Browser Choice. If the user is running Windows 7 the update will unpin IE from the taskbar. When the user opens Browser Choice they will see the following pictures.
