Windows 7: How do I uninstall Internet Explorer

How do I uninstall Internet Explorer

Hi everybody,
There is an issue that's bugging me ever since I installed Windows 7. I can't get rid of Internet Explorer. There seems to be no uninstall app in the add/remove list, nor in the start menu. I use other browser, and I could just leave it as it is, but, from time to time some websites try to open in IE (even though it's not a default browser) and endless popup windows appear, and than it doesn't respond for a while. It's very annoying.

So, having the opportunity to consult the proffesionals, I'd like to ask you if there is any way to get rid of Internet Explorer or at least prevent it from opening any websites?

Thanks

Hello Choppedporks,

You could turn off Internet Explorer in Windows Features if you like.

Windows Features - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
Shawn
