Just that internet explorer was removed from The shortcut i created which means the origional thing had to have been deleted,n the icon in start, all programs aint there, n im wonderin if the IEExplorer.exe i found in the windows folder is the up to date version as it was in the SP1 folder i beleive. But from the pic above is it the latest version basically?
This is wat i mean bout finding the shortcut in the Service pack Folder...

Don't think that is the cprrect shortcut. Try the one in here C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\.

If that doesn't work try repairing IE.

Try this to repair IE
Start/Run/regsvr32 urlmon.dll


To reinstall IE
Start/run/rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\windows\inf\ie.inf


Looks like you're using the backup.

The i386 folder in ServicePackFiles is what Windows accesses to replace critical files that are deleted or modified. Do what Hipster suggested. :)
And yes you are using the most up to date version.
Well if im using the most up tp date version is it worth repairing it still?
I just looked in my C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer Folder n i found the IExplorer icon, ill just use this one then yes?
Ok Thanx Everyone 4 ur help, i should really try n figure out what i uninstalled then lol

Thanx Again

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?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
