Yes you can't imagine and you're right. My topic was based on my answer (on ConfigMgr Forums) to someone who needed to uninstall IE9 with ConfigMgr :) social.technet.microsoft.com/.../72d0eda8-4273-4d4b-b888-86b37d646677
The primary reason we uninstall Internet Explorer 9 at the College I work at is incompatibility with web-based applications. IE is commonly behind the curve on support for educational applications such as Blackboard and WebCT. The question we always have to ask a user is "did you try another browser." When the most current version of IE (at the moment IE 9) will not support the applications we need, that means we need to uninstall it to have a version which does work.
