How do I repair IE



How would i repair IE?

There is no ie in add/remove programs...

so how would i do it?


I tried installing IE over what was already there and it told me I have a newer version then what I was trying to install. Don't see how that's possible...I got the the program/install from Plus this was only about a week after a clean install. :rolleyes:
run the download directly from the internet...even if that dialogue comes up, there should be an option to cotinue, so do it...backup before you start.
If I were given the option to continue, I would have. A message just popped up saying the version I was running was newer then the version I was trying to install. OK to cancel...No other options :(
Might sound extreme, but why not reinstalling XP over itself ? I know that there was an option to repair IE5.5, but I don't remember exactly where, maybe in 'add/remove windows components', IE, repair, not sure if it's not elsewhere, someone may know what I'm talking about...
That's not extreme, that's common, xp should recognize itself, and perform it's own repair
Reinstall XP to fix IE?

I think not.

So has anyone come up with a factual answer yet?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
