Default Re: Uninstalling IE

First of all, just because you don't want a program anymore doesn't mean you need to uninstall it. Unless it is causing runtime problems for certain programs, you should just let it be. However, if you wish to stop using it, keep reading. I am assuming you are using a version of Windows XP. If you are not using a version of Windows XP, please respond with what operating system you are using.

Before you are so set on removing it, try using Avant Browser (clicky); it has much more features than FireFox and is actually safer and faster.

Microsoft has made it possible for administrators and users to remove user access to Internet Explorer while leaving the Internet Explorer code intact and fully functional to ensure the functionality of programs and operating system functions that rely on it.

If you want to go this route (which I recommend if wish to stop using it), then just use the "IEAccess=off" switch in the Unattend.txt file.

If you really need Internet Explorer uninstalled, then try going to the Add/Remove Windows Components section of the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel.
