How to determine if remote server has IE 7.0 installed?

I have about 50 servers that developers access to do their work.  Some of them have installed IE 7.0 which is causing problems.  I need a way to figure out which servers have IE 7.0 installed on them. I'd rather do this from a command line.  Then I can use psexec to run it on the different servers.
I was thinking that there might be an environment variable that contains the IE version or that the IE version could be deduced from the windows version--if that is available as an environment variable.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestion, but that sounds like I would still need to manually check each machine.

What I came up with is to do the following.
echo <Machine Name> >> c:\ie_ver.log && reg \\<Machine Name>\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" /v Version >> C:\ie_ver.log

I repeated the command for each server.  I built each command by merging columns in a spreadsheet.  I know there is a way to have the bat file read a txt file for a list of server names, but I don't know what it is.

I typoed the command I used.  This is the correct command--
echo <Machine Name> >> c:\ie_ver.log && reg query \\<Machine Name>\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" /v Version >> C:\ie_ver.log
