I recently installed a new modem on my PC (Billion 5200S RD), in doing so I had to uninstall X.P Home SP3 or it wouldn't install.
When I attempted to access the internet [internet explorer} a message came up (the operating system cannot run %1).

I have reinstalled SP3 on my PC and this has not fixed the problem.

I am at the moment using Google chrome to access the internet.

What do I do now to repair this problem.

Which IE version is it?
Go to Control Panel and see, if you have Internet Options there and if it's working.

inetcpl.cpl file is responsible for Internet Options presence.

You may have that file missing, or corrupted...

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista/7), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista/7).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista/7, most likely, you won't need it).
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista/7 case).
