Microsoft released a fix for it today, you can download it through Windows update.

Mozilla Firefox.

Delete IE IMMEDIATELY from your computer, save yourself the pain.

Even if you use Firefox you still need IE on your computer, and you need to keep it updated. The reason being that although you may not use IE to surf, other programs may use it to access the interweb. Deleting IE may cause problems with them. So I wouldn't recommend deleting IE, just don't use it.

I deleted almost all of the components to IE and I have no problems other than a few plugins that refuse to install on firefox...

explorer has always been full of security holes.
If they can't build a secure browser,, what in the world are they doing trying to build operating systems..:confused2:
