This was installed as a Microsoft Update to allow you to choose your browser.

It cannot be uninstalled all you can do is System restore to an earlier date and be careful which updates you install.

Looks like it can be removed from starting by going into msconfig and unticking it.
if it then reappears on the Taskbar right click it and remove it.

[msconfig] run and type in msconfig.and press ok.Go to the start up at the top And untick browser choices or whatever it is called and reboot the computer.]
A box may open just tick the little square and it will not show again.]
