I downloaded the latest version of Firefox today and got all my plugins installed and am really impressed with the speed of it. It is also a lot less bloated than IE6.0 I then went to Add/Remove Windows Components to uninstall Internet Explorer and found that that went pretty quick. Too quick it turned out. Even though it is gone from my start menu, it really is still there. The reason I know this is is number one, uninstalling it did not free up any disk space at all and number two, when I ran Windows Update out of curiousity, Windows Updates opens in Internet Explorer. I am running Windows XP Pro with SP1 and all of the additional patches and updates. Everything works fine, it is just that I thought it would be nice if I hit the uninstall button the stupid thing would actually uninstall. I am guessing it may have something to do the tight integration of IE with Windows XP. I am sure other people have run across this before, but was unable to find a thread about it, hence my post.
