Internet Exploder is just a warper for those explorer
It don't really do much by itself. Removing those dll will
severly cripples explorer; tree view, side panel, quick
launch and may other things will just dies.

Media player is just a very simple DirectShow player,
removing it wont impact much on the system IMO. (Removing
those associated dshow filters will, however)
