Never try to remove Internet Explorer from Windows, as many of its files r required for proper functioning in windows ;)
Its hardcoded in windows, and u can never get rid of it completely!
Many software claim to do it but don't work properly!

Setting any other browser (for ex. Firefox) as Default, doesnt set it default for everything!
Internally any program, which use Rendering of HTML pages, or the files of Internet Explorer (like browselc.dll, etc.), depend upon Internet Explorer.
And if u'll remove it completely, such programs will stop working properly and ur system will become malfunctioning ;)

Go to add\remove programs->Add remove Windows component in Windows XP. If it's some other Windows then plz state.

There u can uncheck Internet Explorer, this will uninstall the IE frontend & application. However the IE Trident engine, & rendering engine cannot be removed from Windows at all.
