How to remove IE

(Via BoingBoing and Crackbaby.com:)

“When CERT and other security agencies said to stop using IE, I wasn’t too concerned as I use Firefox. However, it was quickly brought to my attention that due to shell calls and all Microsoft products being able to ignore your default browser, this still made your system vulnerable through IE. So I took the long painful journey of finding a simple way to remove IE.

Now, I’m getting emails from tons of satisfied people who have followed my instructions and have even their default Microsoft aps (including Windows update) using whatever browser they told it to. Even Microsoft has called me to see how I did it. Unfortunately, they blatantly told me that they won’t be including it in their knowledge base ‘for obvious reasons’.”

Here‘s how it works.
