By the way, it is very annoying to have webpages look distorted and sometimes not be able to find or use buttons on a webpage because IE 9 is outdated.
Is your current browser outdated? Solution: Install Google Chrome.
If my network is compromised, then I need to fix that. Once in a while I discover a hacker or network malware - rare but it happens. In the course of a year I visit many websites, so the possibility of attack is very real.
Is your current browser making your computer vulnerable to viruses? Solution: Install Google Chrome.
This summer, Microsoft announced that IE 11 had some serious vulnerabilities to attack and that they were working as fast as they could to improve security.
Is your current browser buggy and unneccesarily slow? Solution: Install Google Chrome.
To which I add, why do you need to? I tried to uninstall IE in Windows 7 and couldn't do it - I came to the conclusion that they were inseparable - so how can you have Windows 7 without IE?
I'm assuming that's a reference back to the Microsoft antitrust lawsuits, where they claimed IE6 was an 'inseparable' part of Win95.
But, just incase you were being serious, Microsoft has intentionally integrated and interwoven the core components of Internet Explorer with Microsoft Windows, starting back with Win98. If you wish to merely make the icons disappear and uninstall the browser as an application, you can go to:Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> "Turn Windows Features On or Off" (linky on the left panel) -> uncheck "Internet Explorer 11" (third checkbox down)
