Have you tried just downloading iesetup.exe and running it.
This is designed to install IE you know.
If you go here
it will show you how to download IE6 in full to your hard drive, then you cna install it without losing a connection. You can also burn to a CD to install to other computers.
I need to repair my original IE, and or IE period. My comp info is on profile.
Upon doing a start, reboot, or I recieve the pop up that IE has been removed and wants to know if I wish to remove my personal setting as well. I have always selected NO. As I read it, cant be repaired. I have as near as I can tell the following options:
The ability to Repair Internet Explorer does not exist in the version that ships with Windows XP. This feature only becomes available after you
upgrade to a newer version. This is normal and has been this way since Windows 98 and IE4.
However, you can reinstall IE in Windows XP by clicking Start, Run and
entering the following command:
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132
**You will need to have your XP CD available**.

I know exactly what was done to create this problem. I ran the IEFIX TOOL @ the aumha site Bob references to. As I recall instructions or what it actually does is not given. So much for the lable.
Is there some reason why a person cant just go to the regestry and change the 0 back to a 1? and if so Id need simple info as to the modifying and decimal changeing. Somehow I doubt that it can be simply changed, as the tool has done.
So...if anyone can advise to this XP CD business.
I have the 10 recovery cd's
the 1 recovery tools cd
Users Guide CD
the MSN 8 CD
the XP Works and Money 2003 CD
also have the security update cd that comes with a free 1 year AV & Firewall Software trial CD
and last the service pack 2 cd
for the record I have not yet accepted the express install of sp2 at windows update site. I have been doing custom and no criticals are there.
And should anyone care to get right down to the brass tact of this open display of abuse that comes with owning a HP. The page at
You must register Component Object Model (COM) components and Windows File Protection (WFP) files.
the above line in patictular. I can trace the exact events even futher than that. And yet I am too stupid to give it an actual name. The ZONE ALARM default IE and Win32 settings SUCK. Ive yet to find any info about common config settings and how the programs should be set. The normal tools eaither couldnt fix things they found, or simply couldnt see anything wrong. Or claimed I didnt have the Welchia or Nachi. Guess Im a real idiot getting a hijackthis log, after I finally got a responce as soon as I moved my mouse twards the 1st target POOF they disappear by themselfs.
Whatever ... is IE fixable on this piece of ... or do I need to get a 6.0 cd from microsoft? ALOT of my microsoft products are broken. Move on to the sp2 .... Im lost. thanks
