Chinese Antitrust Probe Targets Internet Explorer

Microsoft Corp.'s Internet browser and media player are being targeted in a Chinese antitrust probe, raising the prospect of China revisiting the software bundling issue at the heart of past antitrust complaints against the firm in the West. Microsoft has not been fully transparent with information about its Windows and Office sales, said Zhang Mao, the head of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), speaking to reporters at a briefing in Beijing.
