It will not completely remove it ,but this will remove all links for starting it. Basically disabling it.
Programs and Features
On the left hand pane "Turn Windows Features on or off.
Remove the check mark from Internet Explorer9/10 whichever you have installed..
Hi Rick... Thanks for that... But I have already done that a few times..It disables it as you said but it doesn't remove it completely from my system which is what I require... I just want to obliterate completely from my system but it looks as if as one member suggested that if I want to remove IE I might have to uninstall Windows... Geez, Microsoft does not give me a choice in this one it seems... Cheers...
The European version still has a lot of IE integrated in the operating system. You would not gain anything buy going that route.
If you open Task manager you will find several Instances of Explorer running. Depending on what other Microsoft programs you have running at that time
Explorer, Iexplorer, Iexplorer32 etc.
Windows can not operate without it.
The European version just installs Whatever browser you choose as the default browser instead of IE.
