   The ruling that Microsoft must stop demanding PC makers bundle Internet Explorer 4.0 may have a next-to-invisible effect.

Microsoft UK said that it will "comply fully with the ruling" but added that it expected most PC vendors to voluntarily continue bundling IE with Windows 95 PCs.

"Most PC makers want IE because that's what users want," said a spokesman. "Microsoft can no longer make PC vendors install IE but it's a preliminary ruling at this stage. PC makers are free as they always have been to install another browser."

The firm also stressed that PCs already in the channel will not be affected by the ruling.
