In later OS's it is part of windows features and can be turned off (similar to uninstall but not the same). However you haven't told us whether you are using XP, Vista or W7.

Internet Explorer is part of the Microsoft Op Sys. Just don't use it if you want to use a different Browser, although technically you can uninstall that can cause complications. You can have as many Browsers installed as you like. Many people have Firefox, Chrome etc. as well as IE installed.

And Safari or Opera as I do!
