Welcome to Geeks2Go!
Uninstall & re-install IE7 may fix the missing files as they are all components of IE. You'll find IE7 uninstaller in Control Panel->Add Remove Programs. Unistalling it will revert your version to IE6 (original XP default). You should then try using IE6 to make sure that version works before re-installing IE7, so you'll have a better idea of which version is to blame. If IE6 works okay, you might want to leave it "as is" and use a different browser to get tabbed browsing (eg Firefox).

The yellow shield is usually part of Norton Antivirus and/or Norton Firewall. It's warning you that something needs fixing (eg needs updating or an error). I don't use Norton stuff so can't be more specific. This yellow shield is usually in the system-tray, not in an IE window.

Finally, please do not type in block-capitals in your posts. This is the online equivalent of shouting at someone and will make you very unpopular. Indeed, many members, as a matter of principle, will simply not help someone who "shouts".

I know that this sounds very basic, but have you checked your Home Page settings? :)

hi i uninstalled windows internet explorer 7 which reverted my computer back to internet explorer 6.
internet explorer 6 is worse than 7 it kept crashing i couldn't even change webpages without 6 freezing then closing on me . so i restarted my computer and when it came back up it did a system check automactically files and folders and free space seem to be ok so i reinstalled explorer 7 and restarted the computer after the install it's still very slow
but there's something else confusing me as well no matter explorer 6 and 7 both say provided by bellsouth? i've taken everything off my computer concerning bellsouth cause i thought it might be my problem but my explorer still says provided by bellsouth also under my computer local disk c:/ in program files i have 3 internet explorer icons?
is that from uninstalling and reinstalling ? do i need to delete 2 of them? could this be my problem? thanks for any advice donnag35044 p.s. the yellow shield with the exclamation point is still in my left bottom corner i think it might be an error

In IE, click on Tools, Internet Option. There are some buttons to Delete Files. These are temporary files downloaded while using IE, so click on it then pick the one that says Delete all files. Check the box that says to delete all offline files also. See if that helps.

In IE, click on Tools, then Manage add-ons. Disable all add-ons and see if that helps. If yes, then enable them one or two at a time till you find the culprit.
