Does it increase risks not to update servers to IE7? I only allow outbound access for windows and firewall updates.

Not that I can see unless you use the server's browser to check things other than Windows Update.

Thats what I thought but now all these updates keep appearing relating to http and I bet they would stop if I just installed IE7.

If I install them its a risk if they screw up, if i hide them Ill not sleep at night :(

My Windows 2003 server didn't have IE7, and I got the same batch of updates you refer to this week. That's part of Patch Tuesday. You're going to get most of those anyway regardless of the browser you use...at least this month. ;)
