It's unfortunate that this basic system management capability is an extra cost on Windows, when so many other OSes (including, but not limited to) OS X include it. I chalk this up to antipiracy measures.

As for IE, I think that whole thing is a lot of crying by the Europeans. So what if it can't be removed
