There we have it

BTW I edited my post (while you were quoting me) so the changes are glaring

The message is still the same though.

Hmm. I guess there is always a way to amputate your system. I thought he had slipstreamed it with e.g. vLite.

We know you can disable it, but that's not the same as "removing" it. The files are still there

I guess he wen't through the entire system and removed every file associated with IE8, then decided to install IE9

IE cannot be removed, lol, just turned off.

Turned off != removed

Edit: It's like turning off a light and saying that it's gone

With vLite you can actually remove it. But who wants to go thru such trouble. And what is the gain?
