I want to remove IE7 from my computer and use Firefox browser. I have already downloaded and installed Firefox but when I go to Control Panel/Add Remove Programs it will not let me remove IE7. There is no option to remove like there is with other programs. And on thing I read said that when IE7 was removed that IE6 would be restored to my computer. How do I get rid of IE completely?

In control panel, add or remove programs make sure the box at the top is ticked to show updates.
I havent tried to remove IE7, but my computer shows it because I have the box ticked to show updates.

IE is integrated with Windows so there is really not a way completely remove it doing so could cause stability issue with the system.

Removing IE7 in Add/Remove programs will revery back to IE6 (unless SP3 was installed after)
