IE is pretty entwined into your Windows operating system so trying to remove it would not be all that good an idea. You also need IE to update your Windows software. Just don't use IE unless you need to and you should be alright.
If you are getting popups from IE, my first guess would be that you have already picked up something from the net which has infected your computer. Go to this link and follow the instructions in this thread;http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/How...cted-t2520.html
This will intail some reading on your part but fully understanding how to protect yourself on the web can be hard work. It is worth your time though because being safe on the internet isn't as easy as changing your browser.
You may also want to run a couple of these virus scans to see if you are infected or not;http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/http://housecall.trendmicro.com/http://www.pcpitstop.com/freescan/
If you are infected, just post back and ask for help.
