^ Oh, how mistaken you are. The ONLY way to uninstall IE, is to get rid of Microsoft Windows itself. Its an incredibly important part of Windows, since Win98.

I didn't decieve myslef in such a way, I chose to hide IE. Then I chose to move to Linux.

You can remove internet explorer from the following Microsoft OSs

• Windows 2000 • Windows NT 4.0 • Windows Millennium Edition (Me) • Windows 98 Second Edition • Windows 98 • Windows Advanced Server Limited Edition

Here's how: >> Link <<

Pretty much everything a home user would use apart from XP *Sigh*

Edit:

Oh yeah, a bit of topic related propoganda ;)

Reasons to switch from Internet explorer Hackers, don't give them an easy ride.

Well, its still not fully removed, that what I was refering to. The main code, and other parts, are required by Windows, and other apps. That would be why its still on my Windows installation.

Many of the components that are not removed, still leave security holes.

Ah I see, interesting, I should really stop trusting programs to do what they say on the tin.
