Internet Explorer 8 to be removable in Windows 7

Posted on Thursday, March 05 2009 @ 04:26:47 CET by

AeroXperience reports Windows 7 users will be able to remove a large part of Internet Explorer 8, save some components that are critical for other applications.
There is a catch: For now, this only seems to wipe the actual executable running Internet Explorer 8 (iexplore.exe), but given that many of the most vocal proponents of choice were just looking for an option to functionally remove IE8, this might’ve been the only way to do it without killing the rest of Windows. In addition, this actually takes two reboots and a configuration step to complete, so there’s definitely something going on behind the scenes (likely a remapping of where IE-related functions can be found for other elements in Windows so that Windows doesn’t complain about IE’s nonexistence).
