Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 2 can be unlocked and installed on Windows Vista?

Here’s something that caught my attention just now, mainly because most of my laptops and desktops are still running on Windows Vista and Vista users all know that we could not install Internet Explorer 10 on Vista.

Well, somebody just claimed that he had successfully unlocked and installed Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 2 on his Windows Vista Ultimate. He didn’t say how he did it but he did include a few screenshots to prove his claims. He also left a download link that leads to an executable file (malicious?) stored at MediaFire (file hosting service provider).

Should we download the executable file provided by the ‘unlocker’?

Oh no. At least, not until he has properly explained how he unlocks and installs IE10 PP2 on Windows Vista.
