Complete Uninstall Internet Explorer

I tryed to uninstall Internet Explorer by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and then uninstalling it like that... I did it. The Uninstall was COMPLETE

But the pop-ups still show-up and if you use the Address bar when you are in My Computer, My Documents and in the address bar if you enter a URL internet explorer will open up... So it's never really GONE!!! I want it out of my PC!!!

How do I do this ?

Thanks For any Help!!!!!

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to remove Internet Explorer. Removing in add remove programs just removes the icons so they are not visible......very frustrating, I know. You can force re-install it, if it is giving you problems:
The following Microsoft article will walk you through it:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=318378&sd=RMVP
The article states for WinXP, however I found 2 references saying it works with 2000 as well. The old link to reinstalling with Win2000 no longer seems to work. Hope this helps you out.

Is there a way to make it crash or something when it starts-up ??? this will also make me really happy :-)

I just don't want to allow it to run / work

I am afraid you are out of luck;
"Microsoft has made it possible for OEMs, administrators, and users to remove user access to Internet Explorer while leaving the Internet Explorer code intact and fully functional to ensure the functionality of programs and operating system functions that rely on it. "
