Microsoft's AntiSpyware Tool Removes Internet Explorer

Many Microsoft Windows users who downloaded the recently released AntiSpyware program from Microsoft, or had it installed through an automatic Windows update, woke up to a surprise. Unintentionally, the heuristics of the software detected Internet Explorer as spyware, and removed the program from their systems.

Actually I can't miss IE, still got a problem with "click a link and get something in your clipboard" thing.

BTW: if I remove IE, will firefox take all the functions of IE?

example: when I click the " x new mails" link in msn it always opens IE and not firefox

lol, no, to get it to use firefox to go to hotmal, you need a plugin called DPNG (something like messenger plus, but different , and works together with plus) don't know the exact site to get it from again but i'm sure you'll find it if you google "DPNG"
