Windows keeps a backup of system files in,

C:\windows\system32\dllcache

Windows will automatically restore files from dllcache when originals are removed. This is so that a virus does not corrupt the system files

that is pretty the hardest one that you can do, disable system restore. and remove it from the dllcach, isee if that works.

I think removing iexplore.exe is going to be near impossible.
