Just drag them to the trash. MS apps like to splatter stuff all over the place so just do a find for "MS" and "Microsoft" and delete any results. Thats about it. For most other apps they're self contained and dragging the app to the trash gets all of it.

mstergator,

Most Apps inside of OS X are self contained (as in all their dependencies are within the .app).  For Internet Explorer, Just removing the App should remove it, but if you want to kill your bookmarks and all preferences, then simply remove the folder (Home Directory)/Library/Preferences/Explorer

Hope that Helps...
