MS IE is gone… or is it?

    So I was getting some popups the other day and noticed that they said the window was created by Microsoft Internet Explorer. Therefore I deleted Microsoft Internet Explorer using the add/delete progrmas in Windows; now 2 days later I get the same popups still saying Internet Explorer created them… I know that IE is part of windows but it seems suprising that it would rise to the level of Window-creating after having been deleted!

    As long as it still comes with default image of new computers without alternatives, then it will still there.

    I’m not a PC guy, but I believe InternetExplorer runs off the same engine that WindowsExplorer does. So, you can’t really delete it entirely without dumping Windows as well. Solution….buy a Mac.

    Or have zone alarm block IE from accessing the Internet.

    FYI: Removing IE via Add/Delete Programs just removes the shortcut. Microsoft integrated IE into Windows, unless you use a program like LitePC or nLite

    Instead of buying a Mac, I would suggest you try Linux — no need to buy new hardware.

    You have probably got some kind of spyware on your computer. Run an anti-spyware program (or two or three) until your system is clean.
