It's such an annoying program! All I want to do is delete a few things like Internet Explorer but it's not letting me! Please tell me how to get rid of this s**t, it really pisses me off.

A: Windows 7
B: I already have Chrome and IE sucks and it's just wasting space.
......it's the process used by windows to install updates. Please, don't remove stuff at random.

I know what it is but I just want to disable it for a short time while I delete IE then I'll restore it. I just wanna know how.

IE can't be deleted, it's part of windows.

It can be deleted if I get rid of TrustedInstaller though and that's what I'm trying to do. IE just takes up space, and it's not like the computer will explode is I delete it, but TrustedInstaller is such a dictator so I can't delete it. :/
What part of 'it's the process used by windows to install updates' don't you understand? You can't (and shouldn't) remove stuff your computer needs to install system updates.
Just disable it through the windows feature thingy. I swear I already posted this.

Well, if you get rid of it, any programs that use the trident layout engine (the main part of IE) will not function, so things that use it to connect (like most virus protection software suites, games, messengers, email clients, etc) will no longer be able to connect.


As Disco (lol) pointed out, just disable it through the windows feature thingy. that's the only safe way to remove it.
