Well I strongly suspect that the Dell technician didn't know what he/she was talking about because it's impossible to remove Internet Explorer altogether as it's part of Windows. They may have removed something but it can't have been IE.

You might want to take a look at this :-
Just browse through that link and you will have a lot of info about IE.
