image Yes, you heard it right, Sandi Hardmeier (IE MVP) brings us the story that today Microsoft will re-release Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP.

The interesting stuff is that the re-release will not have any Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) check during installation. My humble guess is that Microsoft is trying to get all non-legal copies of Windows XP to update to the more secure version of Internet Explorer.

I have not seen any official words yet on this and it’s not available on Windows Update, but I’ll update this post as soon as I get more news.

Update 2007-10-05: The Internet Explorer team has now made it official.
