Default How do I uninstall Internet Explorer?

As the title states, I need to uninstall the reinstall, I keep getting pop-up ads and I cant get rid of them, so I want to see if this does it. I tried everything, deleted cookies, temporary internet files, pop-up stopper, and Ad-Aware.

i would unistall kazaa first, but both can be done from here:

select that and then the program(s) you want to trash and click remove program and uninstall shield will crank up

YES! I found Kazaa messes up a lot of my programs, including one of my virus scanners and a few games. As for the pop up ad's, i think i know what you're talking about. They pop up, even if you dont have IE open right? I got those too, but i got rid of it by blocking the signal it was sending out with my Sygate firewall. Oh yea im on XP. If you still wanna uninstall IE and u are running XP. Get your XP install cd and go to the section where it says something like Install optional components. There should be a bunch of things checked, including IE, un check it, and whatever else you dont want and then continue, itll automatically uninstall IE

you cannot uninstal IE, it is integrated into windows.

you can turn off your javascripting, it will stop the popups that come from other websites.

you can also download some software that is called popup blocker or something like that.

you should also check your system, if you downloaded something like divx player, there is a thing that you download with it, if you download the wrong divx player, and it will instal something on your machine that will give you popups.

do those things.

Yes! Move any media files you want to keep, and uninstall it. you'll probably find that it solves your problem. Also, try getting AdAware or something similar. It will find your problem for sure. Once you've done taht you can reinstall kazaa lite/whatever.

If you run ad aware it will render kazaa useless, as kazaa wont run if you delete its ad software.

Why don't you just backup all necessary files and do a FDISK? It'd help especially if you have a 2nd hard drive...

believes in 2nd hard drive backups

Thats wrong, kazaalite does not contain any adware. Why dont you try blocking all cookies from the offending sites and placing them in your list of restricted sites in IE under security and privacy settings? Run ad-aware and use a pop up stopper program. Tell IE to prompt when a 3rd party website tries to install a cokie on your machine. When you get a popup, check to see if a cookie has been installed. You usually need very few cookies to make your visits to your favorite sites work properly, and thee are usually easily identifiable. Block all the others. Popups continue to exist because ad agencies exploit people's lack of knowledge of cookie blocking and security settings. I have tweaked my settings and they are all but gone.

you have to register but when i was working for microsoft, we told all people without AV software to go there and do their scan.
works great and they dont sell your email addy or anything.

one of the popups isnt search FOB is it?
their **** has been plauging the internet for months.

and just FYI
IE cannot be uninstalled, its "integrated too deeply into the OS" wich essientally means MS dosent want people to be able to remove it to install nutscrape. (yes i said nutscrape)
