    Hi... First post here, so be gentle. ;-)

    I recently upgraded my HP tower from Vista to Windows 7.

    After a variety of Windows updates and reinstalls (e.g., AIO printer), IE has mysteriously disappeared.

    When I launch IE, I get a message saying "Windows cannot acces path or specific device. You may not have appropriate permission to access them."

    I need some input as to what might be at work here.

    Thanks much.

    Try going directly to the source, C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer and run the iexplore.exe from there. Can you access the net?

    Thanks very much. Running direct made the difference, created a new link and I am back in business.

    This is a great site and I appreciate everyone's input.
