    Perhaps this info linked from the LitePC knowledge base might help?

    http://www.litepc.com/support/kb.cgi?view=48&lang=en

    As I recall I think IERadicator currently does not remove all of IE, some bits are left to retain other functionalities and perhaps Windows Update also? (Don't yet know from first hand experience myself.) I do recall that for awhile they had two IEradicator versions, one that removed more but now there is only one version on site.

    Hi Bethrezen...

    Litepc's 98Lite4.5Free is much more accomplished than Litepc's IEradicator...

    A must-have freeware for W98(SE) users... You won't believe your eyes.

    hi Crockett

    actualy yeah i would coz im already using 4.7 full version

    sig i didnt use ieradicator

    i said i did a clean install with 98lite 4.7 and didnt install ie so there for ie shouldnt be funtioning and then i ran ieradicator aftre which removes excatley the same files as 98 lite does

    yeah i know the difrence between the 2 is the old one removed the shell intergration along with ie but the current one dosn't the current one only removes ie

    yeah i know however even though ie shouldnt still be working coz the main explorer.exe is gone not to be confused with windows explorer i should just get some error message about files beeing missing coz its been removed but i dont ie is still operationalial and i just wanna know how thats possable
