    If you use XP you can just hide it.

    You can, you just have to uninstall Windows with it.

    um no, you can't. As penguin man points out, windows relys on it.

    There are alternate shells that you can use in replace of Explorer. Such as BB4Win or bluebox. I have never used alternate shells though, so I cannot give you any additional information about them, thus, I don't know how well that will go for you. :dunno: I've always used Windows out-of-the-box.

    No, you can't. All you can do is if you have XP SP1 (I think it was SP1) you can tell windows to hide it and not use it. There is no uninstall for it because it is tied to close to the OS. For example, the task scheduler relies on IE components to work. You may be able to cobble together a way to do it manually, but that would be risky at best.

    Edit: :rofl: That's the last time I reply that early in the AM. Sorry Penguin Man!
