settled but not corrected
The DOJ and Microsoft did settle the case in the US. But, the US DOJ decided it did not want to hold Microsoft to complying with US Laws. The most flagrant violation, commingling code between the OS and IE, was completely ignored by the US DOJ. That violation continues unabated to this day precluding any realistic choice for consumers, just like the DOJ wanted.
The effort by Microsoft to attempt to monopolize the browser market was also completely ignored by the US DOJ. And that decision pretty much required this action by the EU.
