Is there a way to completely remove IE? I use Firefox and hate IE and do not want it on my computer. Would there be any harm done to removing IE? Thanks.

well what i do is PC Lite
download the trial
accept the agreement thingy
go to windows file protection tab
go to disable and delete Internet explorer :-P
i think if you turn it back on it will stay deleted

heh kinda dangerous doing this.
because all the files that are protect within windows are now unprotected and of course microsoft added ie so nobody could get rid of it easy.
so dont delete anythign besides ie till you reinable file protection

The BEST thing for you to do about wanting to delete IE is......to get over it.
Trying to have it 'deleted' will just cause system instability. MS made it so it cannot be deleted.
K.I.S.S.
Just do not use the program.

I'd just like to reiterate logans advice of not deleting IE. It's so intrinsically built into windows that you may as well forget about removing it completely. Just remember, that despite having a different browser (in this case Firefox) you still need to keep checking for windowsupdates. It's actually the only thing I use IE for now myself.

i don't think thats true. -- as i don't hav IE on my system.

u can use nlite to create a wincd that will not contain IE!!. but make sure u check the repurcusions of that. u can either remove IE or both ie and the ie core.
