    What about getting rid of I.E. ? It’s crap! It seems you can’t fully get rid of it without causing other problems and then you have to waste hours and even days trying to find fixes for problems to fix more fixes for other fixes, and patches for botched updates, and on and on. Is there a way to do this without wasting time on windows, besides just buying a Mac so you can get work done ?

    Yes, IE seems to be tightly coupled with OS/other components of Windows and there’s no way we can uninstall it.
