How did you "remove" it? Thru the Turn Windows Features On and Off? That doesn't really "remove" it, more like just disables it.

Microsoft makes it very difficult to remove their products like IE, Windows Firewall/Defender, etc. Might as well just disable them and be happy because it always causes problems somehow when you really do remove them. Plus, some website will only run with IE like Windows Update.
