If you are looking for a way to run IE v6 on Windows 7 desktops, take a look at Symantec’s Endpoint Virtualization technologies. In less than three minutes you can see how this product works.

You can see a few of the video screencasts that I produced for Dell’s Kace division on this page. These were done for helping the general Dell sales staff explain what the Kace products can do, and are geared to be played jointly with the sales rep and the potential customer watching the same video from their own offices. If you would like to see the rest of sequence, please drop me an email and I can explain the project further.
