    Um wait - opera believe it or not also has had security vunerabilities in the past. Cause you can't uninstall IE i assume you're on Windows XP or Vista.

    Going to Windows 7 you can remove it, but also increased security with IE8.

    However even here on ZDNET in the past Opera security flaws have been pointed out

    So I guess next time Opera has a security hole you'll switch browsers again?

    If you do some research Microsoft IE team has at least as good, or better security development practice than many competing products. Examples of Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc448177.aspx

      No, you can't.

      You can remove the shortcut to it, but about half
      the programs in Windows will still automatically
      start it inside of themselves whenever they go
      online, exposing you to all of the vulnerabilities
      in it.
