Internet Explorer 8 is showing up in Windows XP’s Windows Update as a critical update. Although this may be a good thing for developers (getting a “more” standards compliant browser out there), it can wreak havoc on networks with applications designed for IE6/7.

There is an IE8 Blocker toolkit from Microsoft. Simply download it and install on your network. It will disable the IE8 update through Windows Update.
