IE is the main windows internet browser. Say if you have Firefox, Avant, Opera, Netscape, or anything else like that, and something goes wrong with it, you can always rely on Internet Explorer (IE) to download one of those browsers again. Also, rebooting i safe mode. Wouldn't it depend on what motherboard you have? F8 works for me, so it should work for you too. Hrm, or you could always turn off your computer in the middle of when windows load and it will automatically take you to the screen where it says like: Safe Mode Without Networking, Safe Mode With Networking, and so on. I wouldn't exactly say that's the smartest idea though.

its not just that its the main browser, its that IE is so ingrained into the os core system files, that its removal may and will more than likely cause the system to become unstable. More often than not, anytime I've seen someone just delete/remove IE it usually resulted in a FFR
