Thread: Repairing Internet Explorer on Windows XP

    A friend of mine has broken his Internet Explorer somehow while using Ad aware. If he clicks explorer or attempts to use a link, explorer starts to open and then a 'send an error report to ms..' window comes up.

    I downloaded the IE 6.0 web installer and sent it to him over MSN. He downloaded the updates and his pc restarted. Still getting the same error :\

    Is there any way to reinstall IE completely on XP? or to do a repair?

    Thanks for any help.

    Actually with Windows XP there are a couple of extra steps involved.

    That link should have all the info you need to get IE repaired.

    If that fails, this page has some nice pics +info for reinstalling after a necessary registry tweak;
