This is the same problem i was facing some days ago. Reinstalling will not solve your problem. All you need is to use another web browser like netscape navigator..or any other but netscape is best choice... but i liked 2 use IE so i formated my pc after backup of necessary files.

Re-install internet explorer, (you can uninstall from the control panel>Add remove programs) you can then re-install the original version or an updated version (from a demo or ISP disk) if you have an install disk from your internet provider there is usually a copy of IE setup on there.

Tip

Add Remove Programs list is blank -- Windows 2000


Usually It happens due to some virus activity or any corruption in system files. So when you go to Add Remove Programmes, It shows nothing but a blank space.

· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 6.0 installed, repair Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.
· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5 installed, repair Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.

If the Add/Remove Programs tool still does not function properly, shows no content, or if you want to try to fix this issue without upgrading to later versions of Internet Explorer, check the following registry keys to make sure that they contain entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache
Note If the previous registry keys are blank, the Add/Remove Programs tool may also be blank.

Use the command line REGSVR32 [path\filename] to register each of the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtml.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Jscript.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msi.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\Oledb32.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ado\Msado15.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msdart32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtmled.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mswstr10.dll [not registerable]


If the Add/Remove Programs tool displays incomplete information or is blank, verify the file dates. Where possible, register the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Gdi32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\User32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msvcrt.dll [not registerable]

    Problems opening links in Outlook 2003


    The most common cause is a corrupt registry key in Internet Explorer. The registry key found at
    HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Classes\htmlfile\shell\open\command
    is either damaged or corrupt.
    To fix it, try resetting Web settings in Internet Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue, set IE as
    the default browser.
    To Reset Web settings:
    Internet Explorer 6
    Start Internet Explorer 6.
    On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    Click the Programs tab, and then click the Reset Web Settings button.
    Under Internet programs, verify that the correct e-mail program is selected.
    Click to select the Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser check box.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.
    You may receive the following message when Internet Explorer starts:
    Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?
    If you receive the message, click Yes.
    Internet Explorer 7
    Start Internet Explorer 7.
    On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
    Click the Programs tab, and then click Set programs.
    Click Set Default Programs.
    Click to select Microsoft Outlook, and then click Set this program as default.
    Click OK, and then close the Default Programs dialog box.
    In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Programs tab, and then click Make default under Default web browser.
    Click OK.

    Export and import the registry key from another computer
    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ ) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
    Note Use this method only if the earlier instructions for each browser do not work to resolve this problem.
    Export the registry key from another computer
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
    Locate the following registry key: HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Classes\htmlfile\shell\open\command

    Click the command folder.
    On the File or Registry menu (depending on your operating system), click Export.
    Note the location of where the file will be saved. The registry file can be saved directly to the hard drive or floppy disk.
    Type a unique file name, and then click Save.
    Quit the Registry Editor.
    Import the registry key
    Copy the Exported registry key to the desktop on the problem computer.
    Double-click the .reg file.

    and 'drag' the icon to the command-box like window.
    Then process explorer will tell you which program or process is causing this window to appear.
    Find this program or process in windows file explorer and delete it.
    Done!
