Some programs may not work if you completely remove Internet Explorer because they use part of it to display their screens.  Is it that you don't like IE8 or are you trying to accomplish something else?

we can have IE 7 but IE 8 has not currently been cleared to run on the systems here.  So i am just trying to roll it back to IE 7

I would download the ie7setup.exe first from this page: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/ie7/  Then go to Add/Remove and Windows Updates and remove it there.  It should fall back to IE7 but if it just removes it, you can reinstall IE7 from the file.  IE7 is available only for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Glad to help, thanks for the points.  I hope you can upgrade to IE8 soon because it really is much better in many ways.
