    download mozilla firefox from command prompt. Here is the way:

    Start >>> Run >>> Type CMD hit enter.

    Type the following


    Once you're logged in (using the username anonymous, and no password),
    navigate to this folder using the cd command:

    cd pub/

    Once you're there, download the Firefox install file like so:

    get "Firefox Setup 1.0.exe"

    Exit ftp with the quit command, then install Firefox by double-clicking
    the .exe file as you would any downloaded program.

    Once done use firefox to download Inetrnet Explorer 8 beta from (There is a separtae download link for Vista users).

    This installation should re-write IE7's files with same and some newer ones.
    Give this a shot and rate if helpful!!!!!!

Have you tried opening it not only fron the shortcut (icon on desktop) but also by pressing start, internet explorer? If these don't work, try pressing start, run, and type "iexplore" into it.

Will not open in my microsoft explorer browser

I have Internet Explorer 9 and it came up fine. I tried it first in Firefox, but it gave me the same message you saw. I would recommend updating your version of Internet Explorer, because version 6 is very very old and will have issues such as this. Their website must only be designed for Internet Explorer.

You can update it using Windows Update from your Start menu, or go to Microsoft to download it. I have included the link to Microsoft below.

I canot open my internet expoler options although the icon is there

You can open Internet Explorer but cannot open Internet Explorer options, am I right?
So open Internet Explorer and go to 'Options'.
This is how you do it in Internet Explorer 6.

In later versions there is a small icon for options at the right end of the toolbar.

Hi rastafari1,
I think that your Explorer is running without adds-on,, to fix this you must go to C:/Programs Files/Internet Explorer/ and open the internet icon that is in there, it shall be iexplorer... if this fixes your problem just bring a short cut of it to your desktop...
