I wouldn't recommend deleting IE. I use FF myself, as well. But you have to have IE to get your Windows updates. You can't use FF for those, and it is critical to keep Windows up to date.

Windows Exporer is also part of IE and I suspect you use that regularly. No, don't delete IE.

Actually you can get windows updates with FF. But that's said.. IE is bundled into the OS itself, so don't delete it. Just don't use it :tazz:

You don;t need IE for updates, just enable automatic updates. also theres a plugin for firefox that allows you to do it manually if you dont want to enable automatic updates
