Leave IE installed - Just don't use it. You can have more than one browser

As USN Vet pointed out, you can have more than one browser. You can have several for that matter. But you will need to set the one that you want to use as the default browser.

Uninstalling IE8 will not remove IE, it will revert back to the previous version you had installed.

Just curious, did you uninstall IE8 under Add or Remove programs in the Control panel?

Internet Explorer 8 was added after the installation of XP. Internet Explorer is installed as part of the XP operating system, this is why is doesn't show in the add or remove.

Windows XP originally came with IE6 which is just over 10MB.

If your hdd is getting full you can always transfer files to removable media, like CDs, DVDs, flash drives, or another hdd.
