Removing Internet Explorer from previous copy of W8.1 which is upgraded to now be W10. I

As mentioned above I have W10. Previous to this I had W8.1  My problem was that I had Spyware on the start page of the IE Browser. I had many unwanted windows
opening at the same time causing havoc and me much frustation. Then Windows 10 downloaded and installed itself over 8.1. My pc is now transformed to the good. All except occasionally the fact that IE opens rather than Edge, and I have the too many unwanted windows opening problem. If I consciously open Edge all is well.In fact I enjoy using Edge. I would very much like to be able to totally uninstall IE. Is this possible?

You cannot totally uninstall Internet Explorer and also if you had viruses, upgrading to Windows 10 will bring the viruses along.

So concentrate on removing the viruses. Remove IE in Windows Features, restart, scan with your own anti virus and then with Malwarebytes. Wait for all to finish (both your own scan and then MBAM). Restart (MBAM will probably tell you to) and add IE back in. Restart again and test.
