Yes, you can remove features. You'll need to go to Server Manager, Expand the "Features" tab and then use the Add/Remove Features buttons on the right-hand side. IIS, though, your web server is a role rather than a feature.

For how to install server roles, have a look at this technet article.


Yes, it is possible - corrupt windows installs are always possible.

It also is possible he has no rights to remove it on the account he uses.

But otherwise - no, features can be added and removed.
