List of changes that are made in the Windows Internet Explorer 7 Installation and Availability Update
• Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation check is disabled.
The Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation check process is now disabled in the Windows Internet Explorer 7 Installation and Availability Update. Therefore, you can install Internet Explorer 7 even if the version of Windows that is installed on the computer is not genuine.
• The menu bar now appears by default.
Unlike the version of Internet Explorer 7 that was released in the fall of 2006, the menu bar now appears by default.
• First Run Experience runs for new users.
The first page that appears when you start Internet Explorer 7 helps you complete the browser installation process by prompting you to define the default search provider, the phishing filter settings, and more. For example, you are also prompted about whether to enable ClearType. Additionally, the First Run Experience highlights some top-level features of Internet Explorer 7.

Nice to see MS were hyping on about change and what not, and have now decided to change everything back, including default menu bars and restricting access to genuine Windows has now gone by the wayside.

The only problem is, you don't get this update if you don't download IE7 manually. Apparently if you already have a version of IE7 already installed, you won't be offered this revised version.

Pity this update doesn't solve the problem that *is* Internet Explorer 7, I never liked it from the day I first saw it. Pity this update doesn't really add anything worthwhile (the ability to install without needing to validate Windows may come in useful though).

edit: Oh yeah, a security update from August is immediately offered even if you install this newer build over the one installed last August. Very well thought out that was to release this and then have to apply a patch from three months ago.
