It is possible for you to remove Internet Explorer from Windows OS. It is for the first time that Microsoft has allowed users to uninstall IE, without breaking any other functions of the operating system which depend on it.
Uninstall Internet Explorer
Many applications like Messenger, Windows Media Player, MS Office, etc which depend on it, will continue to run properly.
Uninstalling Internet Explorer will not remove the shared rendering engine components, but only the IE executables, settings & shortcuts will be removed.
