Internet Explorer Yesterday, Microsoft dropped a bomb by announcing that all versions of Windows 7 released in Europe would ship without Internet Explorer pre-installed. This was in answer to the EU antitrust investigation currently under way regarding possible illegal bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows. The first reactions to this news are coming in, with Opera and the EU both lamenting the move.

Ok Captain Fabulous, if it's just the libraries which IE and other programs rely on, why is iexplore.exe still on the system and responding too:

Start -> Run -> iexplore.exe

You'd think that removing through add/remove would result in only the minimal shared DLL left behind not simply having IE step behind the wizard's curtain.
