On my Windows 7 Professional install I want to completely remove Internet Explorer and go with Google Chrome.

After a fresh install of Windows, I wanted to get rid of the Internet Explorer 9. So I had to remove the update again. But that left me with Internet Explorer 8, which I can't remove like other programs as there is no entry in the list of currently installed programs.

The last time I installed Windows 7 I somehow managed to disable the Internet Explorer via a check-box setting. I wish I could be more specific, but I really don't know where the check-box was. It was very simple and worked just like that.

Do you know where this setting to disable the Internet Explorer is located?


Start, control panel, uninstall programs, turn windows features on or off. I'm on my cell right now, so I well expand a bit later on a computer
