    Should I delete Explorer? (XP Home)

    Just a simple question...
    Gave Explorerer the boot and switched to Firefox...
    Working on a small drive - laptop - can I uninstall the windows explorer without anything to worry about?

    Thanks in advance for the reply

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    Explorer is an integral part of the operating system and can not be removed. The option to remove Internet Explorer in the control panel just removes access to it from the start menu and desktop.

    You will still need Internet Explorer for some sites (such as Microsoft update).
