What programs can I delete from Control Panel if we have Microsoft Windows 7 and use a IBM compatible computer? I hear one should use Internet Explorer as backup only. True? Can we delete any programs from IE? We are trying to have more space and faster speed. Thanks!

Not sure how often

That's no really a Firefox support issue. A Windows support forum would be a more appropriate venue for asking about that.

That said, AFAIK it is almost impossible to remove the version of IE that comes with the Windows operating system, without breaking other parts of of Windows.
