I'm back......

Download the attached file and save it to your desktop. Right click on it and choose "Extract All"...extract it to the desktop, too. Copy the extracted file (fixdesktop.reg) to a flash drive, floppy, or cd. Navigate to it on the broken machine, right click on it, and choose "Merge"...accept the change.

Reboot. Do you have the desktop after the reboot?

Hmmmm....This certainly is being stubborn.

Run the commands I gave you in This Post again. When it asks for the cd, use the one you've been booting with.

Ok...let's try the ie.inf one again. Instructions here

We need to get these applets running...by whatever means. :)

What I'd really like to do is run a repair installation, but I'm almost certain that the disk you have will not accept the product key for the operating system that's installed.

Yes...in every case.

Those are the files from the IE7 install that didn't work.

We may have to do this one again, but I've kinda got a game plan formulated. We'll take it a step at a time.....

I was halfway expecting that.

Open Control Panel (type control in Task Manager), then open "Add or Remove Programs". See if Windows Internet Explorer 7 is listed after we tried to install it. If it is, see if you can remove it.
