Since IE is so interwoven into your OS you can't really remove it, without major operability issues. Just don't use it. I have OE on my machine for XP updates and MS website browsing and sites that won't render on any other browser. Other than that, I use an alternate browser or three and just ignore IE. I don't even have a desktop icon for IE.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

If you just want it out of sight go to start, control panel, add/remove programs, windows components, and uncheck ie and click next and go through the wizard and it will be gone, for the most part.
