Yes.
Probably the best way to do it is with a clean install though.
Use the custom setup and don't install any network components when you run setup.

You don't have to re-install windows to get rid of IE, just go to <my computer> <control panel> <add/remove programs> then find Microsoft Internet Explorer then Microsoft Network click the add/remove button on each one. It's done!

The simple answer to your question was:  YES.
I didn't say you HAD to re-install Windows!
Re-installing is the best way to do it if you want to maximize your hard drive space.
Simply uninstalling as Tuff suggested will still leave a lot of unused data on your computer.
I don't think it will even touch the MSN files!
