Many people like to uninstall Internet Explorer if they plan on using Firefox for the rest of their lives, but this isn't possible because IE is integrated into Windows.
However, it is possible to *disable* access to IE using one of the following methods:
1. Select "Set Program Access and Defaults" from the Start menu. Uncheck each browser that you would like to disable access to.
2. From the Add/Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel, select "Add/Remove Windows Components." Uncheck the checkbox next to IE.
I disabled access to Internet Explorer after I installed Firefox.

An overrated slow loading web browser which gives users a false sense of security. Will not stop malicious downloads or viruses. Stupid users will still manage somehow to infect their machine with the latest virus/malware.

Also comes with a gimmicky extension facility to load more crap into the browser and deviate away from its core use of web browsing.

Plus, with every new release you have to reinstall all these damn extensions again. So much for usability, eh?
Why have all my extensions stopped working with the new release of Firefox?
