    Internet explorer install program

    Internet Explorer is included on every windows operating system. It should be on your computer unless you uninstalled it. But you can go to goggle and search for "download internet explorer" to download it and install it. Sometimes a virus can remove internet explorer from your desktop or all programs list. You can get it back by clicking Start/My Computer/Local Disk C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer Inside the internet explorer folder you will see the big blue E that was normally on your desktop or in your programs list. If you right click on it you can select the Send To option and select Desktop (create short cut). You can also right click on it and select Pin To Start Menu.

    If your internet explorer is on you desktop or in your program list and when you click on it there seems to be a problem with it, then you might want to click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. In the internet options window click on the Advanced tab then select the Reset option then click ok when it finishes. Then try running internet explorer again.

    Internet Explorer is not working. What I can do to get it back. I try different thing to get it back, but it was imposible. My son was plaing and delate internet explorer.

    To reset Internet Explorer settings
    1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.

    2. ? to 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.

    • If you close all visible windows, but still get an error message when trying to reset, you might have programs running that are not visible. Restart Windows, open Internet Explorer, and try resetting again.

    • To back up your home page or home page set before resetting Internet Explorer defaults, see Back up your home page or home page tabs.

    • If any of the categories fail to reset, it is because Internet Explorer could not access a file or registry setting. This can be caused by insufficient security privileges, files or settings being used by another program, or low memory or high CPU usage. You can either continue to use Internet Explorer without restoring these settings, or restart your computer and try to reset again.

    • If you are using Internet Explorer on a server and have turned off Enhanced Security Configuration or hardening (stronger security settings for use on servers), reset will go to client-level security. You must reinstall hardening if you want the increased security level. For more information on Enhanced Security Configuration, see Enhanced Security Configuration for Internet Explorer online.

    The IE8 menu bar and certain toolbars are blacked out. Why?

    This is caused by having your display properties (Themes, Appearance) set to 'Windows Classic'. Resetting them to Windows XP fixes it - You can then change it back to Classic again if you wish and it will display properly

    Icons are no longer visible since installing Internet Explorer 8

    recommend reinstalling the software, you shouldn't lose anything unless someone did a custom install of the software.. but if it was a standard install all your records should be where you left them.. WARNING!! IF you are told you must uninstall the software first do NOT select YES to the question if the directory should be deleted.. IOW KEEP the directory if possible.
