I would advise against connecting any vaguely recent version of
Windows to the internet without IE installed.  Without IE, I think
you will find it difficult or impossible to use Windows Update, which
you will need to do every week, or more frequently, to keep up to
date with security fixes (MS euphemism: Critical Updates).  Although
a lot of security problems involve IE, not all do.
