    During removal of Norton System Works the ie stopped responding.
    Tried all methods listed in Microsoft Q318378 and can not get it to work.
    Can not reinstall the XP with the existing disk since the operating system is newer then on the disk and computer will not reinstall. XP is updated with sp2
    I do not want to reformate the disk since a large number of programs will be lost
    Is there a way to reinstall the Internet Explorer?

    * From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
    * Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
    * Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
    * In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
    * In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
    * Click the Search button.
    * In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
    * Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
    * Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.

    If it asks you may need to insert the cdrom for some files.
