I uninstalled Messenger on our home PC (Windows XP) and now the entire Internet Explorer is gone. Hubby is furious that everything he had saved or bookmarked on IE is gone. Is there any way to undo this? System restore won't work. He is furious, please help me!

Hello ashad00...

Internet Explorer is a Windows component and is nearly impossible to uninstall...so it's probably still there somewhere.

What have you done in terms of trying to find it thus far? Which version of IE was installed...IE7 or IE8?

I haven't done anything to try to find it. He won't let me near the computer, he is that pissed. He's in there doing stuff on it, he keeps yelling out "don't you ever come near this computer ever again.", then he'll say "I think I fixed it." I don't know if it's fixed or not.

Hopefully he got it going.

If not, there are several things we can look at to get it back. It may be as simple as a deleted shortcut...at worst, a removed component...which can be easily restarted.
