What do you see available to remove under control Panel/Add&Remove Programs/Windows Components? Is there an option to uncheck Internet Explorer there? If so uncheck it and see it will roll back to the default IE, or completely remove it.

Let us know

what i can find

by erinchilton In reply to Windows Componenets

When i look in my control panel i cant find anything for internet explorer, but when i do a search on my computer it has files called quick launch, launch internet explorer, internet explorer, internet explorer(no add ons), ie add on site, welcome to ie7, ie site on microsoft.com, and a file that says internet explorer. I cant delete any of these files because it says they are no longer located in that spot and i cant find were they are. I am currently using firefox and i really dont like firefox and want to go back to internet explorer.

To open Reliability Monitor in Microsoft Management Console
<br><br>
Click Start, click in the Start Search box, type perfmon, and press ENTER.
<br><br>
In the navigation tree, expand Reliability and Performance, expand Monitoring Tools, and click Reliability Monitor.
<br><br>
Additional considerations
<br><br>
You can open Reliability Monitor in its own window by typing perfmon /rel and pressing ENTER in the Start Search box or at a command prompt.
<br><br>


Use Reliability Monitor to Troubleshoot
<br><br>
Reliability Monitor shows you your system stability history at a glance and lets you see details on a day-by-day basis about events that impact reliability. This topic helps you understand the results and take steps to improve reliability based on what you learn.
<br><br>
System Stability Chart
<br><br>
Reliability Monitor maintains up to a year of history for system stability and reliability events. The System Stability Chart displays a rolling graph organized by date.
<br><br>
The top half of the System Stability Chart displays a graph of the Stability Index. In the lower half of the chart, five rows track Reliability Events that either contribute to the stability measurement for the system or provide related information about software installation and removal. When one or more Reliability Events of each type are detected, an icon appears in the column for that date.
<br><br>
For Software Installs and Uninstalls, an Information icon indicates a successful event of that type occurred, or a Warning icon indicates a failure of that type occurred.
<br><br>
For all other Reliability Event types, an Error icon indicates a failure of that type occurred.
<br><br>
If more than 30 days of data are available, you can use the scroll bar at the bottom of the System Stability Chart to find dates outside the visible range.
<br><br>
Viewing historical data
<br><br>
Reliability Monitor displays the most recent date's data by default.
<br><br>
To view data for a specific date, click the column for that date in the System Stability Chart or click the drop-down date menu to select a different date.
<br><br>
To view all available historical data, click the drop-down date menu and click Select all.
<br><br>
If more than 30 days of data are available, you can also use the scroll bar at the bottom of the System Stability Chart to browse dates outside the visible range.
<br><br>
System Stability Report
<br><br>
The System Stability Report helps you identify changes that contribute to a lower Stability Index by identifying Reliability Events. Click the plus sign in the title bar of each Reliability Event category to view events.
<br><br>
If you have clicked on a date column in the System Stability Chart, the System Stability Report will display events from that date. To see all events or choose a date outside the visible range in the System Stability Chart, click the date drop-down menu in the top right corner of the window and use the calendar, or select All dates.
<br><br>
Reliability Events
<br><br>
The Reliability Events recorded in the System Stability Report are as follows:
<br><br>
System Clock Changes
<br><br>
Significant changes to the system time are tracked in this category.

Try the link

by Jacky Howe In reply to error message

from my last post and see if you can reinstall it. In your documentation that came with your Notebook it should have provided insructions to create a Recovery DVD or you may have a hidden partition on the hard drive with a Recovery partition. If it is on the hard drive it is a special key that you enter on startup to restore your PC to the factory defaults. Your instructions may provide information on creating your DVD. If you find that you have to create the DVD that is what I would be doing before anything else. Backup all of your important information to DVD or a removable hard drive as you will lose it if you do a Recovery.
<br><br>
Open Internet explorer and on the toolbar click Help and then click on About Internet Explorer as that will tell you the version that is installed.
