Hi Bob,
That worked.   Thanks.
Now I will reboot and see if it fixed the file.

    Hi All,

    I found my computer with a headache this morning.   I
tried to open Internet Explorer and it will not.   The error
message is that iexplore.exe is corrupt.   I tried to open
Windows Explorer and get the same error message.   My other
programs seem to be working ok, for now.

    I tried run > sfc /scannow and the system asked me for my
Windows XP cdrom and I cannot find it.   I still have my
receipt but no cdrom.

    So, I copied iexplore.exe off a computer at work and then
I tried using dos to copy to c:\program files\Internet
explorer and I keep getting the error message shown below:

    Of course, I don't know if that would even work, copying a
good iexplore.exe over the bad one.   I do have a good
iexplore.exe on c:\ drive;   what if I deleted the other one,
would Windows pick up on the good one.
