Get rid of Internet Explorer

IEradicator is a small, dare I say tiny, 50K ASCII script that uses the Windows setup engine to surgically remove Internet Explorer versions 3 through 5.5 from Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows Millennium.

The removal of Internet Explorer is safe. You can reinstall Internet Explorer if you are one of the 70+% for which IE is the browser that floats your boat. If not, then you can bask in the inner glow of knowing you just secured your PC from all known and unknown, past and future, IE security bugs while claiming back 30+MB of closet space. Isn't it nice to have the choice?

IEradicator is also great for clearing the dross away before upgrading to a newer version of Internet Explorer

In this great new version 3.1 the removal process is elegant with all COM servers politely being asked to de-register themselves from the system registry using their inbuilt deinstallation routines before being eliminated from the hard disk. IEradicator then pulls out the cleaning gear and gives the registry a good polish before returning control back to you. The MS HTML Engine (shdocvw.dll and mshtml.dll) is left on the machine to provide needed functionality for other applications that render HMTL (e.g. Outlook Express) or that launch a mini-browsing window (e.g. Netmeeting's Online Directory). NEW in 3.1: fixed scripting error with Outlook Express v5.5

A great strength of IEradicator is that you can open it in a text editor and see what it is doing.

Get rid of Internet Explorer

In response to the above response...IE crashes much more than many other browsers out, which is one reason to get rid of it.. and 30 extra mb's of room is a strong argument against IE in itself.For your better-browser problems, Tim, check out [url removed] kicks IE's ass.

IE rules it gives web designers (like myslef) a bit more options to play with and make the page look better. Netscape is used for the bare bones Basic sites which we are all going away from.let me ask u this, can u do pop up layers with NS, so it looks like the windows start botten? NO u cant cuz NS is BARE BONES!!!

Ummmmmm...as much as I HATE WinBlows...I have to say that killing IE (as much as I hate it) is not a very good idea if you want WinSlows to function correctly, Linux will be in good order in about 3-4 years...untill then I suffer with the rest of you Windows users!

Get rid of Internet Explorer

Well Linux is the best OS ive ever see, the only proble is that windows programs wont work because they are made for windows. adn ppl dont download that thing from neonplanet because its crap ifs even harder to remove then IEPOWER TO THE PPL

thanks for making it a little more simple to remove the (default) browser feature that is bundled in the (MS)Windows based software package. it makes me wonder why some simple minded people must trash something because they are unable to fully utilize the tools in which they have to work with.

That because bill gate killed netscape hinded their progress in making better browser, if you were to compare Ie 4.0 to netscape 4.5, you see netscape is the clear winner! Netscape could not compete because they can't they have both their hand and feet chopped off before they can walk or even do anything period!!!

Get rid of Internet Explorer

the only reason netscape is shit is because microsoft sabotaged it by firstly tampering with windows and all their products, making them not work with netscape... and then merging IE with windows so that all the people buying their new computers would just use IE. Netscape is not shit, its alot better than IE... you only think its shit because ur one of the many retards still using windows.. the oporating system of instability and no security, windows causes the errors, not netscape or any other browser.

kaboom -- you are a flamebaiting idiot. Netscape is a piece of shit. It has nothing to do with windows. I use netscape 4.75 on linux every f**king day at it has brought down X more times than I can count. Please stop talking trash.
