    I was planning to repair the Internet Explorer in hopes of fixing a very frustrating problem. After going to the Add/Remove Programs section and thoroughly scanning the list of programs, I realized that the only listing for IE was listed as "Internet Explorer Q867801" I've never seen it listed like that before, but I went ahead and clicked on the Change/Remove button. Then a little popup window asked me if I was sure that I wanted to 'uninstall' the program. I thought maybe if I clicked yes it would take me to another choice menu to either Repair or Uninstall it, but the next message I got told me the program was successfully removed and that I needed to restart my computer. So I'm not sure if this was the right program or not. Does anyone know if this was truly the IE and why it had those numbers in its title?? Why can't I repair it?

    Thank you for all the help I've gotten, I so appreciate it!

    Hi DarleneVile...

    You actually uninstalled an IE update...Internet Explorer 6 SP1 Cumulative Security Update Q867801. I would re-install it again. You should be able to get inagain from WindowsUpdate...if not you can get it here => http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS04-025.mspx. The numbers Qxxxxxx or KBxxxxxx tell you what MS Article or Update it is.

    As far as repairing IE...the following links should help you out...
