Internet Explorer: Cannot download unless I upgrade? (Image from windows.microsoft.com)

I am not sure why I ended up seeing this, but let me tell you my story (it may actually have to do with actually using a Microsoft product).

On occasion I get a friend’s computer; they have a virus, I know how to fix that. Well, one of the main problems was that they were using Internet Explorer 7 with a kazillion toolbars and who knows what else. So, I opted to update their browser…to what you say? Internet Explorer! I thought to myself, “They’ve really done a good job with Internet Explorer 9. Now is finally the time I am okay with installing Internet Explorer as a default browser on a Windows machine.”

But, I guess Microsoft and the Internet Explorer folks still are up to their, “We’ll do it our way, thanks” ways. I downloaded Firefox.
