Beginning with IE version 3, the browser and its components became very tightly coupled with the Microsoft operating systems they were installed on (which was an issue in a major lawsuit against the company.)
This had several effects:
* IE could not be uninstalled from the system
* IE could only be upgraded to versions newer than the default version for an operating system
* Multiple versions of IE could not exist at the same time on a system
It is unclear what it means to "remove IE" because such a removal depends on being able to determine which files or functions on an installed Windows system are part of IE — that is, to draw a line between IE and the rest of Windows. Microsoft has held that this is not meaningful; that "IE" is no longer (as it was prior to Windows 98) a separate piece of software, but simply a brand name for the Web-browsing and HTML-displaying capacities of the Windows operating system. In this view, the result of removing IE is simply a damaged Windows system; to have a working system without IE one must replace Windows entirely.
