Windows without IE?

Mar 04, 2009

A leaked version of Windows 7 (the Windows OS to replace Vista) reportedly allows the user to remove Internet Explorer from the operating system. This would be a dramatic change in policy by the software giant. For more information check out

      You can hide it, but you cannot remove it. Try the following:
      – uninstall IE (add/remove windows components)
      – open up “My Document”
      – in the folder bar replace “My Documents” with “” and guess what? Google shows up. Why? Because I.E. is still a part of the operating system.

      Windows 7.0 is the first Windows operating system since 95 where Microsoft has separated the browsing of files on the local network from the browsing of files (web pages) on the internet.
