Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
You can't uninstall Explorer, per se. Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer actually use the same base executable files, and Windows will not run without these files. However, if you are having problems with it, you can do a reinstall/repair of Internet Explorer in XP. There is a Microsoft knowledge base article explaining how to do this here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318378/EN-US/ If your Internet Explorer is fine, and you wish to uninstall Windows Explorer, well, that's just not possible, short of reinstalling Windows completely. If this knowledge base article isn't what you need, can you explain why you need to uninstall Windows Explorer? Possibly we can find another solution.
