You shouldn't delete IE as it will cause overall system instabilty and you could have corrupted operating system files. Also IE is linked with Outlook Express so you can corrupt that as well. IE is also a requirement to obtain any security patches from Microsoft.
The cache may be filling due to these programs that require it.

You can't dump IE. You need it for Windows Updates and for some websites that require ActiveX. But maybe you have spyware running in IE.
Keep your anti-spyware solution up to date, and run a full scan every few days. I recommend the free SpyBot Search %26amp; Destroy that you can get from http://www.download.com
Good luck and Happy Computing!
Are you trying to use both Firefox and IE as your browsers, or are you just using Firefox? If you only want to use Firefox, all you have to do is disable IE. You don't want to remove it, since it's an integral part of Windows. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, and when the list loads, click on Add/Remove Windows Components on the left side. When THAT list loads, scroll down and find Internet Explorer. Remove the checkmark by it, close the control panel and restart the computer. IE is gone but still available if you change your mind.
You also need to clean up your files. Click on Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and Disk Cleanup. Let it run, and remove everything it finds. You may find the cache's a lot cleaner.
hmm interesting .....
