Just don't use it for your web browsing. As explained here IE is more then just a browser, removing it could have a detrimental impact on other applications that may require it.

The most notable reason is that Microsoft requires IE for Windows updates. Sure you could try and hunt down the individual downloads yourself, but why bother?

Yeah i agree, my internet explorer kept messing up. So I decided to just stop using it. I use Mozilla Firefox. Even though sometimes it surpresses my plugins, but it's good.
