    Hey,

    Well a while ago i completely deleted Internet explorer by using some program that forcefully deletes things called "unlocker".
    I did this because my IE kept messing up, so i wanted to delete and reinstall - obviously being the dumbest thing i could do.

    Now it appears its pretty much impossible to get it back? I really need it right now as some files from my maths cd can only be opened with IE and nothing else -_-...

    Any help will be appreciated

    Thanks :eek:

    Ah, but thats way out of the range where the restore can take me.

    Deleted IE quite a while ago.

    You may have some luck in Control Panel/Add Remove/Windows Components
    What's the file extension of these Math files?
    Any browser should be able to open html files m which are just special text files.

    Im pretty sure its html.
    When i try to open with firefox it says "unable to load", and then with google chrome it says "Solutionbank requires Internet explorer v6 or higher" Solutionbank being the name of the company.

    "Pretty sure?"
    Look at this file in details view so you can see the file extension.
    Open it with Notepad and post the first 15-20 lines so we can see what's going on.

    One of those lines is checking for IE, and I can't tell which.
    Try adding IE in Control Panel.

    Internet Explorer is part of the operating system, so depending on what you deleted, it may not be possible to recover. If System Restore doesn't work, you could try a Windows repair. Otherwise, you may need to reinstall.

    Yeah already tried that, it comes up with an error and asks to restart the computer then follow the troubleshooting steps.

    I don't know what imaging the first drive is ><

    I have a D drive which is for recovery. Could the orginal operating system files be in there? (which should include IE?) If there is, is there any way to recover the IE files from there?
