And that's not all. After download, installing and updating IE11 I got an M$ update msg today to
install 53MB of accumulated updates.
If this causes any more probs I'll just hide future updates as I don't use IE anyway since I started
using Firefox with DuckDuckGo Addon (no tracking) and it works like a champ. I would delete IE
completely if it wasn't intertwined in my brain stem and spinal cord. Like you have to remove windows
to remove it. You/I can strip it down but not completely annihilate it. Hook, line and sinker.

I might see what happens all my machines have ie10 and will most likely stay that way and unused
I use Pale moon 64 bit now for about 3-4 months and it's good enough for me

Might have to download Chrome on my gaming rig now that I have Origin and some games that are online only :/

Will windows 7 work correctly if you delete Internet Explorer completely ?

Was n't there a way Windows 7 uses it in their setup or am I mistaken ?

Control Panel> Programs and Features>Turn Windows features on or off, and uncheck Internet Explorer, it doesn't affect the correct operating of Windows.

Internet Explorer is not a discreet component of Windows. Remove IE? Uninstall Windows.
Seriously though, there are some manipulations that can be used to disable it but not completely
remove it. But you need IE to download Firefox/DDG.
