You can't uninstall/eliminate Internet Explorer from your computer because it comes bundled with your operating system. However, if you want, you can disable it. To do this, navigate to Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a program, press Turn Windows features on or off, uncheck the box next to Internet Explorer and press OK:
