I can't reload MSN Explorer!

Since I've never used MSN Explorer (in fact, I'm not even sure if I ever even had it in Programs), I unchecked MSN Explorer via the Windows Components Clean-up feature under Disk Cleanup (supposedly clearing up disk space). When I later decided to put MSN Explorer back (although I'm not sure why) and rechecked its box, after a few moments into an installation process I got a message saying that "The file "auupdate.exe" on (Unknown) is needed". However, "autoupdate.exe" exists neither on my computer (I tried to find it via Search and then used "sfc /scannow") nor on my Dell Windows XP Installation CD! (Supposedly, "auupdate.exe" is in the I386 folder, but currently isn't.) Does anyone know how I can get "auupdate.exe" back (or even if it ever existed)? Thanks! :tazz:

MSN explorer is usually preinstalled in a lot of computers.

I would try reinstalling it to see if it helps. Open up add/remove programs from your control panel and select change/remove under MSN.

Also, I would recommend Mozilla Firefox as your default internet browser over anything else. :tazz:
