Microsoft Forcibly Removing Internet Explorer From Your PC

The Internet Explorer from Microsoft deserves to perish. Or at the very least to end its suffering. 

Performance and security issues have affected the 27-year-old browser for a while, and Microsoft has entirely shifted to its Edge counterpart.

Last year, Microsoft formally put an end to the troubled IE, yet it is still present on Windows PCs all around the world. 

Microsoft has now started routinely uninstalling instances of Internet Explorer from customers' machines in an effort to suck up the leftovers.

Internet Explorer 11 will be permanently disabled on any Windows computer that still has it installed 

Thanks to a software upgrade for the Edge browser that started rolling out this week.
