Isn't there a proggy called "IEradicator" available?
I recall , it claimed to be able to remove IE from your system without harm....
At any of these circumstances IE must be used for windows updating. You can not remove it without harm because you will not be using windows update again. Even IF you do not mind virus being on your computer, many people will darn you for sdpreading it , so you should always use windows update.
Distribution: Slackware: in progress, Mandrake 9.2, Libranet, Vector

Talking about windows update... Now when was tha last time I did it... Oh yes first time SP2 came out. And I rolled back all the updates about an hour later...
I dont think that matters. As long as you have good firewall and virus sanner, you are safe. The only updates I do are media player and directx.
Isn't this part of the Anti-Trust lawsuit? I read (in a real newspaper ) about MSFT having to release a version of Windows in EU that didn't have Windows Media Player. They agreed, and said they would only release it in EU as that's where the ruling was. And the article went on to say that it was a foolish thing to do. People won't know of anything else available, and upon first "update" will be offered the player for free anyway. It allowed MSFT to hike up the price of a version of Windows that comes with a Media Player...
Anyway, yeah, I don't think you can remove IE without major effects on the system (XPLite I think doesn't even completely remove it?).
As far as I'm concerned, some win apps REQUIRE IE. I think, it's NortonUtilities. And some great Russian app - Solo on keyboard, which helps you to leran to type without looking at your keyboard!
I've learned 65 lessons of 100 for Russian keyboard. Only one word: Typnig not looking on a keyboard is VERY CONVINIENT and FAST! Try it. It's low price. (I use, of course, pirated
