Impossible to get rid of ie7???

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by thatoneguy314, Jul 28, 2007.

  1. I apologize if this has been discussed before, I looked, but did not se
    anything that really explained this. One person asked how to do it, an
    all I got out of responses was that it was impossible

    So is it true that there is no way to completely uninstal Interne
    Explorer? Because that seems pretty stupid to me

    Thanks! Please let someone have an answer

    If you're running Vista, you're stuck with IE7, sorry, as it is an
    integral part of the OS. If you want a real OS that doesn't even
    consider including IE7, check out Open Source. Either www.ubuntu.com or
    www.pclinuxos.com are good choices. Not only will you not have to put up
    with IE, you don't need an AV or anti malware programs and when there's
    an update for *anything* on your computer, it all comes from one source
    and that source informs you automatically so there's no need to check
    Java here or check for Flash updates there.

    Oh, and either OS is FREE!

    Ignore Alias if you are happy with the rest of your Windows system. IE is an
    integral part of the Win System, but you do not need to use it. There are
    several very good free browsers for download on the Internet.

    Firefox from www.mozilla.com
    AceExplorer from www aceexplorer,com

    Are two very easy to use examples.

  5. It is a part of the operating system. Just don't use it.

    You are not able to remove IE from any Windows OS. It is an integral part of the operating system . What you can do is to remove the shortcut for IE from your Desktop. Also you might want to remember that IE is needed to get your Updates from Widows Update.

    I already said that.

    Opera from www.opera.com is another. SeaMonkey is another.

    Trust me, if it was paid, there would be whole lot more. I do this out
    of the goodness of my heart and don't get paid one euro cent.

  9. Of course you can get rid of IE7... the only thing that is NOT possible is a
    Vista that is not crap.

    But there is a catch, you have to remove it from the vista disk image and
    create a new one, then install from that new IE7-less disk

    The tool to do this is called vlite from www.vlite.net

    you can remove almost anything...including windows media player media
    center, defenter and many other things that make vista the
    horrible bloated monster it is.

    HOWEVER>>>

    Many programs require the IE technology since they use parts of IE to
    function, and without it you would not be able to use those.

    If you do not care about that... you can experiment with the above....

    If you are a newbie I suggest you just ignore Ie7 and use firefox, maxthon
    or avantbrowser.

  10. The preceding bullshit from Mike was on behalf the Microsoft fanboy
    club, a particularly dumb, always loud, often wrong, always up tight
    bunch of losers that try to pretend they're computer "experts" and
    know more than everybody when in fact they know next to nothing about
    anything.

    Mr. Arnold Guest

    You can't remove IE from the O/S. You use IE when a site calls for the use
    of IE. You use something like Firefox (free) when the site doesn't call for
    the use of IE.

  12. A browser does NOT and should not be part of the operating system.
    That's the point. If it's too hard for you to keep up, let me know.

    Say Mr. Arnold, you seem to be about a decade behind the times. The
    era when some web masters foolishly used HTML coding to favor one
    browser's capabilities over another was a relic of the 80's and 90's.
    So as usual, another fanboy blusters bullshit.

  15. Since WinXP was developed several years ago, Microsoft has decided to
    make Internet Explorer (IE6, then) an integral part of the OS. It could
    not be removed. The same policy was maintained during the development
    of Vista; IE7 is built-in as an integral part of the operating system,
    and *cannot* be removed.


    I don't know that I'd use the term "stupid," but I agree that an
    internet browser should not be part of an operating system. If I ever
    decide to develop an OS, I'll not include a browser. Microsoft
    apparently thought otherwise, though, and it is their product, to
    develop as they like.

  16. A deliberate lie! Malware to exploit Linux exists.

    Another lie! There's an update only if and when some hobbyist feels
    like developing one. You're entirely dependent upon the whims of
    individuals.

  17. <Chuckle/> Although, to be more accurate, perhaps you should have said
    that the source is the "Church of Linux." Lintrolls have more faith and
    delusions then facts at their disposal, of Alias is typical of them.

  18. I won't argue that point, I agree. Be that as it may, it's not
    relevant to the question. IE7 *is* a part of the OS. That's an
    unfamiliar-to-you concept we like to call reality. Deal with it.

    1000 dollar bills exist too but I bet you don't have one. If one only
    gets one's programs through the repository, no fear of viruses or
    malware. Period. I know you're scared sh¡tless that you won't have any
    Windows based computers to constantly clean and make money on but that's
    progress!
    You are depending on the whims of nVidia, ATI, Java, Adobe, Microsoft,
    etc. The difference is when there is an update, you have to hear about
    it with Windows and then go looking for it. Ubuntu tells you right away.

    Hmm, I'd love to see you explain that to all the paid full time programmers
    at Canonical working on Ubuntu. A lot of open source projects have quite a
    bit more commercial backing than you might think and are actively
    maintained by paid programmers just like any other commercial product.
    Just that these companies make their money in other ways, allowing the
    result to be open source.

    You don't really seriously believe that a handful of hobbyists
    working out of their garage could maintain a 6 month release schedule for
    an operating system now do you?
