It's going to be an automatic high priority update, unless you don't accept updates.
Here's some more info about IE7 and how to install or block it from being installed automatically.
IEBlog : IE7 to be distributed via Automatic Updates!
I have had the upgrade to IE 7 blocked in the registry since they decided to make it a critical update whether you wanted it or not.

It still has the same hole they have been patching since IE 5. Security my arse.

Even the tabbed browsing feature is pathetic compared to Firefox / Opera / Avant.

Here's the registery hack if you want to try it...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup]

 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\7.0]

Copy and paste into Notepad and save as IE7Block.reg

Then click on it to install...
