I now have an uninvited unwelcome guest on my Toshiba Satellite laptop XP. Its name is < Internet Explorer (No Addons) > and it is causing all kinds of trouble with my computer and my regular browser Internet Explorer. I tried to Restore but I can't get on Restore now. How can I get rid of it? It does not appear on Add/Remove Programs. It shows up when I try to access files or folders on the Internet.
I am sure I have confused you good people more than I have informed you, so if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them. b17sam

Hello b17sam...

Internet Explorer (No Addons) is a "safe mode" version of Internet Explorer that can be used when IE won't work due to a corrupted addon. It's installed with Internet Explorer and can be a real life saver if the regular Internet Explorer should stop working at some point.

Firefox also includes a similar browser that's aptly named Firefox (Safe Mode) which is installed with the regular browser for the same reasons.

If you are having problems with your browser, we'll need a more complete description of the problem in order to help you with it.

Thanks Wannabe1 for your quick reply. Looks like I should learn to live with it.
