If you have service pack 1 or 2 than uninstalling IE 7 will revert it to IE 6... which may be a better solution than removing it all together.
If you have service pack 3 than you cannot remove IE 7, without removing SP3 first.
Anyways, you need IE 5+ for Windows Updates...

I wouldn't do anything about ActiveX, beside making sure, they have safe settings:
In IE, go Tools>Internet Options>Security tab, click on "Custom level" button.
Make sure, that your ActiveX settings look like this:
If you insist on taming ActiveX, you can use:
- ActiveXHelper: http://www.nirsoft.n...s/axhelper.html - to view, and disable ActiveX of your choice
- Active XCavator: http://www.softpedia...-XCavator.shtml - you can even delete ActiveX with this program
