That sounds like a big PITA!
Alternate solution: Windows without Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player and Outlook Express. These are the biggest security risks
on windows. The following DVD is hosted on a torrent site. You will need to download this using a client such as utorrent.
I can vouch for this DVD it is quite safe to use and actually a work of genius by eXperience, the guy who created it.
The DVD is approx 3.9 GB but contains all you need for a fully functional Windows system.
1. Download DVD ISO Image file.
2.Burn it to a DVD.
3.Backup your computer or save all files you need to external drive or DVD's ..etc...
4.Boot your computer from DVD.
5.On Boot Screen choose Windows XP, Full version, without IE/WMP/OE, and with Driver - Packs.
Not only will it install Windows XP without IE/WMP/OE, it will Install Mozilla Firefox for your browser and Mozilla Thunderbird for your e-mail client.
For Multimedia functionality it also installs the K-Lite codec package.
Bonus - It contains most drivers to configure your hardware during set-up, it will configure the majority of wireless, graphics,network and sound cards ..etc.. so you don't have to go looking for drivers post-install.If you have any hardware such as a printer and USB devices have them connected to your computer during setup so drivers are installed for them.
