    Internet Explorer not working

    Agreed, but it is not my computer - belongs to a lady friend who states that a couple of her other friends also has the same problem! I suggested she use system restore to a time a time before it stopped working but she said the only restore point working is the day IE became faulty.

    Internet Explorer not working

    I cannot open IE either from task bar icon or through Start Menu. Clicking on a hyperlink does not open IE also. If I locate the exe file will it reinstall IE? What is name of file and where to find?
