Ok, last night I was working on my computer and I tried accessing a web page when my Internet Explorer stopped working. It would not open the link so I closed the other window. I then clicked my Internet Explorer Quick Launch button and nothing....it didn't even come up for me. I am running Windows XP Professional and until the problem came about, I only had SP1 installed. I decided to install SP2, but that did not solve the problem. i also did a scan/repair from my Windows disc but it didn't seem to find any missing system files. I also ran WinDoctor from my Notron SystemWorks 2004 disc....still nothing. I installed Mozilla Firefox just to access the internet, so I can get on that way, but I want my IE back. I was able to run Windows Update from an open folder (just went to address bar and put in web address) and everything is up to date....but I cannot get on Internet Explorer to surf. This happened to my brother so it seems as though it may be a common problem...but I cannot find any information whatsoever on the Net. Please help. Thanks in advance!!
