    Hmm I was wondering.. Say for example if I use an Alternative Browser aside from the Traditional Internet Explorerů Is it safe to Uninstall IE? Or would that cause system errors?

    IE cannot be uninstalled as it is tied to the Windows O/S.

    IE can be uninstalled, but it will require a bit of work. I'm not sure if its a good idea though, some apps depend on IE from what I remember.

    You could always just leave it and don't use it.

    Really?
    I have tried at least three different guides and have yet to successfully uninstall IE.
    Fortunately, I enjoy reinstalling XP....

    Yep leave it alone ,delete the short cut from your desktop if you must and use a different browser . Winupdates are too important.

    Really? I've never tried it, but it seems easy, aren't there 3rd party apps that can do the job?

    From what I've read, if one really successfully uninstalls ie on XP. I mean gone, no trace. It'll f up so many programs that depend on it. One being KL.
