Sadly, this is all but a lost cause...

_But_ why was there even a browser (at least one of the complexity and
error-proneness of IE) on the box in the first place?
After all, MS put that browser there and insists it is a necessary,
core part of the OS. If the supposedly (well, "hopefully") informed,
educated folk who should be preventing such idiocy at companies with
extra responsibility as MS has (its part of the cost MS bears for its
size, market dominance and profoundly BS marketing line that computer
systems have developed to the point where anyone that can use a mouse
can adequately be let loose on the Internet) cannot prevent such idiocy
then what hope can the much larger, much less nerdy, much less IT-
oriented general user population have for user education being a useful
part of the solution?
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
