Hello,

Internet Explorer is an integral part of Windows and it cannot be uninstalled.

To run it, go to:

c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\ and in that folder, run the program iexplore.exe.

You can create a shortcut of this executable file and place it in the start menu or desktop for better access.

In fact, if you open up Explorer (which can be any folder within Windows) and show the address bar by going to View > Toolbars and checking Address Bar, then type a URL in the Address field and hit enter, you'll be surfing the Internet.

Hello,

ah...alright.

Place your Windows XP Setup Disc into the CD drive, then go to Start > Run and type...

sfc /scannow

...then hit enter. It will check important system files on your PC and makes sure they exist, and if they don't, then it will place back missing files.
