Three options -
Repair Internet Explorer - Do this in Control Panel, Add/remove programs, then try and remove IE. It will give you a prompt to repair it.
Download IE/patch - do this at www.microsoft.com
Get a better browser - do this at www.mozilla.org

I went to control panel (I'm running Windows XP Home) and I did Add/Remove Windows Components, because it wasn't listed in the normal window w/ the rest of my progs. but the only option was to remove it from my desktop and start menu.....can anyone help here? I really would like to fix this w/o changing my browser. Thx in advance.

Ah, in win98 you can repair IE. Dunno about XP.
Try looking around in the Tools and Help menu of IE for a repair option. Also, try downloading the service packs from microsoft and see if that helps.

I always keep it up Windows up to date and get the newest drivers for my hardware so that's not an issue. Are you saying I should redownload the service packs? No one else has any clue how to uninstall or repair IE in XP Home?

At this stage, your best bet is probably the knowledge base @ www.microsoft.com

what version of IE do you have?

I have according to my Help > About Internet Explorer: 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp1...... so I'm running Service Pack 1 under XP Home.

I use the same ie but I have windows millenium,
If you can't get some help in your help section on the computer I would suggest either uninstalling ie and reinstalling or simply installing a new copy over the one you have.
Don't use the one on your disk. That may be corrupt.
You might want to install bho cop to see if you've picked up any plug ins in your browser and adaware from lavasoft.de to catch spyware that could be goofing around with your system.
Running Norton to detect a virus might also be enlightning...you can find online virus checkers if you don't have one.
