    internet explorer is a built-in component of windows xp. as far as i know it cannot be removed unless you deactivate windows file protection. if it were to be removed, your operating system will likely not function properly.

    Click Start->Set Program Access And Defaults ->Add/Remove Windows Components
    Un-tick internet explorer
    Click Next

    That should do it.

    no, that removes icons

    Internet explorer is in EVERY folder you open, if you removed IE, you wouldn't have any folder windows, unless you just overlooked the web bar ontop of everything you open

    Yikes. LitePC sounds awesome. I have to remember to get that. I have a Comcrap 700 so it's probably better to wait a bit until it finals.
