    To remove internet explorer, you can use following method:
    • Open on Notepad file
    • Copy following in notepad:
      @echo off
      cd "\Program Files\Internet Explorer"
      if not exist IEXPLORE.EXE goto End
      if exist IEXPLORE.EX_ del IEXPLORE.EX_
      if not exist IEXPLORE.DIR md IEXPLORE.DIR
      if not exist IEXPLORE.DIR goto End
      attrib -r -h -s IEXPLORE.EXE
      if exist IEXPLORE.EXE goto End
      echo IE disabled.
      echo If prompted, click "Cancel" then "Yes" on File Protection restore.
      echo Run enable-ie.bat to allow IE to run again.
    • Save this file as "disable-ie.bat"
    • Double click on that saved "disable-ie.bat" file
