Microsoft made IE a part of the OS you cannot remove, however, there are great alternatives to it.

Download firefox or the suite. Built in popup blocking, and if you install plugins like adblock and bannerblind you wont see ads in pages you are viewing either.

welcome to TSG :)
Go to Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs, Add / Remove Windows Components, then untick Internet Explorer.
