Have you tried to repair Internet Explorer? Go to Control Panel>Add and Remove Programs. Locate Microsoft Internet Explorer on the list, highlight it and choose Remove. A new window will open with the option to repair it.

Try this link with Firefox: http://www.java.com/...windows_xpi.jsp

When you click the link, Firefox will block it. Look towards the top of the page and edit the block.

How can I repair IE, because it only shows up on the Windows Component tab and not the main window?

If MSIE is not in the Add Remove Programs list, then you have a real problem.

I've repaired MSIE more times than I care to remember, before moving to Firefox about a year ago. If you have a Windows XP CD, you could go to the Component tab and reinstall it. If it is ticked in that window, the size to the right is 0.0MB.
