Just to be clear. I find that I have IE9 installed on my laptop. Not quite sure how that happened other than me putting it there, but now that it's here what will happen if I disable it in "Turning Windows Features On or off"? I still use FF for my browser and really can't think of any reason to keep IE open. Does Hotmail still work without IE? Am I going to lose any important features of Windows if I disable IE?
