Guess what? Microsoft is still annoying!

Does anyone happen to know how to get IE7 and / or Windows Media Player 11 without also installing that evil "Windows Genuine Advantage" malware? I don't desperately need either, but it would be more convenient to have them than not. And my automatic update thing keeps trying to install them, and getting stuck when I tell it I don't want WGA.

Note: my copy of Windows is in fact perfectly legal. But I don't like WGA on principle, and I have also heard that it can give false positives and the last thing I need is for my computer to be locked because of a bug in the nasty intrusive program.
