Possible to disable Default Browser, similarly to no Default Mail app?

(Why the title can only be 70 characters? Too short. Most normal forums allow 100 characters minimum. Where to suggest this?)

Longer title: Is it possible to disable Default Browser, similarly to there is no Default Mail app?

I want to do this for added extra security for my light virtualization setup, and just for the heck of it.

Sorry, I'm not 100% understand you, as I'm not a native speaker. Was it a question? Maybe, but without the question mark. Any 3rd member helping me to translate what @samuria has said, would be helpful, too!

Hi XCR,
the only way i can think of
Turn OFF IE, via progs/features.
Install another browser, then change the startup value in AdminTools>> services >> properties>> change to manual.
note uncheck new browser entries in system config >> startup.
