1. Wrong section
2. Micro$oft made it impossible to completely remove it. However there are ways to bannish it to a minimal setup under control panel\add or remove windows components\windows component wizzard.

:edit: cleaned up messy post

:edit2: mods please move this thread to windows operating system. thank you

Use windows update then 'Start->All Programs->Set Program Access And Defaults' will appear and you can remove IE and Outlook Express as default web and mail handlers etc.

Exactly. But one thing you can do that might take some of the sting out is the following:

Open up My Computer and go to Tools/Folder Options/View and check the box that says "Launch folder windows in a separate process." It adds a degree of stability by not have Windows rely on one explorer process, which can potentially cause conflicts/instability. I have no idea why this option is disabled by default, but when I do a clean OS install, it's one of the first options I change.
