Removing IE from Win98

Wednesday December 16th, 1998

Arielb, a regular in our talkback forums, has written in with a link to a site devoted to removing IE from Win98. It's rather complex, but possible (at this point not for the faint-hearted). Arielb writes, "If you have Win98 and are interested in removing IE from your system, you should follow this work in progress.

Be sure to read _everything_ (release notes,etc) so you won't mess up and so you'll know if this is [appropriate] for you."

Actually I think the witness wrote the program. From his testimony he removed specific lines from dll files using a program, not sure it was the same one. He also had to share it with Microsoft around September and claimed in his testimony that Win 98 was modified on Dec 4 so his program wouldn't work correctly. So everyone be careful Microsoft loves to modify code to hurt programs that hurt them.
