If you are using Windows XP, try doing a System Restore on a date you know IE 
was working ok.

  Hey, when I installed Windows xp, did it make a backup copy of the setup 
files on my harddrive?

  I would go look but Explorer will not open.

    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.
