You do not have to use IE. There are lots of other browsers out there (I prefer Opera myself). You can use any browser you want to on the web.
You should not try to uninstall IE. It is integrated into too many other parts of Windows OS.
Just don't open it and don't use it. It is not hurting anything being on your machine and not being used.

Internet Explorer plays a major role in windows...I strongly DON'T recommend removing it. i see if you dont want to use it (Looks plain to me)... and i don't recommend mozilla...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
