When I tried to install Internet Explorer 9 on my development machine I got a dialog box stating that I need to close some programs during install. It also says that these programs use files that needs to be updated.
Here is the list:
- Java(TM) Update Scheduler
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
- OfficeScan NT RealTime Scan
- Windows Desktop Gadgets
- Windows Explorer
I can accept that MS want to update files that are part of the operating system or other programs from MS. But what do they want do do with Firefox for example. ...and why should I disable or close my Virus scanner at any time at all.
What changes do MS do to Firefox? This really annoys me because they should do anything to Firefox, its a holy principle.
I canceled the installation for now, hope to get some insights first!
