Having tried both 98lite and ieradicator I'd say be a tad cautious.

Both seem to work, but on an old 486 I found a basic Win95 worked much
better than Win98 litened, and an over ambitious use of ieradicator lost me
everything on the hard drive.  (see
http://www.georgedillon.com/web/freeware.shtml#ierad for details).

FYI.  Nice though it is to see my tip of 16th being recycled,
ieradicator does NOT *totally* uninstall IE... it leaves some
'essential' bits so you don't disable everything that relies on the IE
engine, like er... Windows.
