I use Mozzilla Firefox for my web browsing and was wondering if there is a way I can disable/restrict Internet Explorer?
I am asking this as I have attempted one suggested method (using a proxy server for your LAN settings with an address of 0.0.0.0 via port 80), however this method removed my ability to download and install Microsoft & Windows updates. Also, whilst I cannot be certain of this, I have a feeling that this technique was responsible for the loss of my ability to stream live radio over the internet (I could not find any other settings that would have caused this to happen).
I am using Kaspersky Pure 3.0 for my resident anti virus and could make use of "application control" to lock IE down completey but do not know if there are any services, applcations etc that rely on IE to function properly or whether tha is going to cause more problems than it solves.
Any ideas/suggestions would be helpful in attempting to restrict what I view as one big unnecessary security hole on my pc.
Thanks for any help that can be provided.
