Microsoft removed IE7 from Microsoft Updates

Since last week I haven’t seen IE7 in the Microsoft Update catalog when doing a clean install.  Very strange as I thought it is actually better for most people who don’t know what they’re doing to have a secured browser installed automatically.  Most people don’t know that there is a new browser or even how to go to Microsoft.com, look for IE7 and then download/install it.  Makes little sense to me.  I’m kind of disappointed to be honest.  I searched Google news and couldn’t even find an article saying that they removed it.  Two computers today, clean install with SP2, doing all Microsoft Updates and I have yet to see it pick up the IE7 update.  Weird.
