missing explorer.exe

Hi

Have you tried to uninstall then reinstall Internet Explorer? As you are running Win98 you should install I.E. v.6. What is 'E' on your desktop? Is it a networked drive? If so, then you may need to change your internet connection settings. Some internet connection sharing programs will interpret logging onto a mapped drive as attempting to connect to the internet.

Hope this points you in the right direction

The easiest solution would be to do a search on your system for iexplorer.exe and then when you click on the shortcut icon browse to the application's location.

Another solution would be to try launching IE from the start menu and if that works okay, then delete the shortcut on your desktop and make a new one from the start menu location.

Another solution would be to upgrade/reinstall Internet Explorer...particularly if iexplorer.exe cannot be found or the other icons don't work.

If you see this problem with other executables as well, make sure to virus scan your system and run disk utilities...it may be a symptom of a bigger problem.

Good luck!

Verify your spelling.

iexplore.exe is Internet Explorer program.

iexplorer.exe is a trojan virus.

If you are indeed receiving the error message described in your question, a virus has placed a bogus line in a system file, possible win.ini or sys.ini.

After you verify the exact message - iexplore OR iexplorer - leave a comment so we all know for sure.
