haven't seen it before and also never use IE. a quick google search brought up a couple of "special" uninstallers to get rid of it, so it must not be needed. Check the start-up tab in your programs list and make sure nothing is there. then i would reboot again and try and uninstall. If that doesn't work, I would disconnect from the net and reboot again, so IE can't connect to anything. Then use the task manager to shut it down and finally delete it.
