Reinstall whatever version of IE you have from whatever source it came. You can install MS Office over itself, for example, and restore Internet Explorer. Or you may have to reinatall Windows, selecting the "repair" option.

Once your basic Internat Explorer is restored, from either your Windows or Office CD, go to microsoft support and download site, and install the service packs and/or security upgrades as necessary.

Have you run an IE repair?

If you go to ADD?REMOVE programs and select to remove IE, it will open a window that lets you select whether to remove, reinstall or repair IE.

THis will check the install and download any files that are missing or corrupted,

Are you SURE it is an IE problem though>

What errors or issues do you have?

As pointed out by OZ you should do a repair first. You cannot delete IE. The bigger question is why isn't it working (what's the problem)? If it is not working due to a virus or malware then a repair (or reinstall) isn't going to fix it. If you do a repair and IE still does not function properly then do a scan for viruses and a check for malware with either AdAware or Spybot Search & Destroy (or both).

Post back with your results.

Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
When you try to reinstall the same version of Internet Explorer, you may receive the following error message:
Setup has detected a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed on this system.
Setup cannot continue.
To avoid this error message and reinstall the same version of Internet Explorer and Outlook Express, follow these steps: 1. While you are logged on as an administrator, click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
3. Locate the appropriate registry subkey, right-click the IsInstalled (REG_DWORD) value, and then click Modify.
