Just got the first XP machine with the Browser Ballot update on it.
I clicked “next” and IE8 came up with a window asking me to choose my settings. I closed it and selected Firefox from the available options. Internet Explorer opened and downloaded Firefox. I installed it and the browser ballot window was still there. I closed the ballot window and rebooted.
The ballot came up again, but this time even worse:
This thing is horribly broken. Even when you have installed another browser it tries to force you back to IE. It didn’t delete the IE icon off the desktop or Quick Launch either.
