Hello,
You can reinstall the Internet Explorer's latest version from HERE So now you have internet Explorer.
But if you really want to reset C drive you should format the drive but just to let you know it will delete everything you have in C drive - For Example your programs and probably your OS.
Even then you can reinstall the whole OS from the CD or DVD that you received when you bought a laptop. And your laptop would be as good as new but if i were you i would backup all my data in External Hard-disk or any Peripherals that uses to store data.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

How to Reset Internet Explorer settings
By resetting Internet Explorer settings, you return it to the state it was in when it was first installed on your computer. This is useful for troubleshooting problems that might be caused by settings that were changed after installation. When you restore Internet Explorer's default settings, some webpages that rely on previously stored cookies, form data, passwords, or previously installed browser add-ons might not work correctly. Resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings does not delete your favourites, feeds, and a few other personalized settings. See the table below for a complete list of all settings and information about whether they are reset or maintained.

Resetting Internet Explorer's settings is not reversible. After a reset, all previous settings are lost and cannot be recovered. Rather than resetting everything, you might want to reset specific settings or delete your webpage history.
To reset Internet Explorer settings use the following procedure
You need to make sure you have Closed any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
Open Internet Explorer and Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
1.png Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
2.png In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
3.png When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.Close Internet Explorer.
Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.

Why does my internet freeze? what can I do


If your computer as a whole is freezing, then you have to check for viruses / malware.
But, if it is only your internet that freezes up, then try resetting your Internet Explorer.
I am presuming that you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, as your browser.
To reset Internet Explorer (IE) :-
1. Open Internet Explorer .
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons
check box, and then click OK.
5. Switch to the Security tab.
6. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
7. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
8. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
9. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click
Close, and then click OK .
10. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box
11. Close Internet Explorer . The changes take effect the next time that
you open Internet Explorer .
Try to reset IE, as explained above.
Even after resetting IE, if IE still freezes, then there may be some viruses / malware on your computer.

When using my D-Link-655 router, I can't access some Web sites, but I can access others. This applies to all computers on my network. I can, for example, access my work (company internal) websites and use...


Have you isolated the problem by directly plugging your computer directly to your modem, bypassing your router? If you have done this but still cannot browse some websites, then this is a DNS problem with your Internet Provider. Try using Open DNS, 208.67.220.220 as Primary and 208.67.222.222 as secondary. Then try to browse again. But if you have plugged directly to the modem and was able to access those websites, then there is a restriction on your router and you may need to press and hold the reset button to reset it back to factory defaults.

My browser will not connect to the internet


Do you have any other internet enabled applications that are connecting properly? If you do have other internet enabled apps and they too are having problems than I would suggest trouble shooting your network connections.

If you are running Windows XP go "Control Panel" and under "PIck a Category" select "Network and Internet Connections". Next select "Network Connections". Right click your network connection and select "Repair". Windows will attempt to repair your network drivers, settings, and reestablish your network connection. If unsuccessful it will attempt provide an error message describing the problem.

If you don't see that option start checking connections along your network cable wiring. A plug may have come out or a cable damaged.

If it is not your network connection or your wiring it is your browser software. Reset your browser back to default settings to repair any changes made by accident by yourself or perhaps a website attempting a browser hijack:

Reset Internet Explorer to the default settings To reset Internet Explorer to the default settings
  1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
  5. Select the Delete personal settings check box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.
  6. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
  7. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.
  8. Close Internet Explorer. Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.
Hope this helped.

I have an acer 5315 and everything went funny i could not see graphics and couldnt get onto internet explorer etc and so as no cd came with the laptop i referred to your handbook and reset factory settings...


im afraid there is nothing to be done
once reset to factory settings, the hard drive has been re-imaged.
shoulkd the data be valuable enough, you could send the drive off to data recovery specialists who will be able to recover some of your data though its unlikely they will recover it all.
my deepest sympathies
