how to repair internet explorer

by a / November 18, 2005 8:05 PM PST

I am using IE 6 without spII on a window xp machine
with 256 mb ram.
Since two days IE is not working. Put any site
but nothing happens. It don't even try to access
the internet. Firefox is working fine.
No entry for IE in add/remove program.
How to repair it. There use to be a way to repair
it but I can find it anywhere now.
Recently installed latest version of dap (download
manager) and one recover deleted file program.

First, You must be signed in as an administrator


Click start


control panel

add/remove programs

click on Microsoft Internet Explorer

It will then give you the option to remove or repair it.

Choose repair it.

After you repair it restart your computer.

You will then need to go to Windows update to reinstall all your critical updates.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your replies.
My IE is working now.

I already told that its not visible in
add/remove program. Its still isn't.
Surprising. Any suggestion why
this is so.

And about the article. I have gone through
many such after a search of forums(which I
should have done before), and did many things.
And IE is back to work again. Thanks for the

Good day.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
