Heh... I just noticed (by chance) that there is an option in |Control
Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> Windows Components| to remove Internet
Explorer (which supposedly "Adds or removes access to Internet Explorer
from the Start menu and Desktop").

I never thought I see the say where MS makes the removal (or at least
hiding) of IE an option :)


Does it work now?

It's always been there to my knowledge, but in the past it's never actually removed it - just reverted to the prior version.

Which version of Windows are you looking at?
