    Some how my IE browser got corrupted, I try deleting it and reinstalling it from the microsoft site but everytime I try to run the install, it says a later version of IE exists on my computer and it will exit the install. I try deleting IE from add and remove programs but it doesn't give me the option of removing the application just to repair...I tried deleting it from windows explorer but It just gives me an error message about IE is in use(even though I'm using a netscape browser)..Everytime I try to lunch IE I get that error screen that u can send an error report to Microsoft....OS is XP professional

    You really shoud not try to delete Internet Explorer by deleting its files as it will make it very difficult to get working again.

    Have you actually deleted any files that Internet Explorer may be required to have? If you have not we can try to fix why it wont start up instead of deleting it and reinstalling.
