    About a couple months ago, I did a system restore after installing the beta version of Internet Explorer.

    Since then, I can no longer run IE in either version, nor can I remove the beta version.

    If I open up IE, type a url in the address box and hit enter, Firefox opens the new site in it's browser.

    How can I repair IE and bring it to it's former version without having to reinstall Windows XP Pro?

    You can try going to Tools(in Firefox)-Options, and under the General tab is a section that says Firefox should check if it's the default browser. Make sure that box is not checked. Click on the Check Now button and tell it No when it asks.
    Then in IE, 6 anyway, in Internet Options, under the Programs tab, is a box to check for IE to check if it's the default browser. Make sure it is checked.
