Hi Trapper,

No I cannot open the Explorer.   I get the same error message as Internet 
Explorer.

Yes I must find the cd.   :-)

Carl
ps, I'm having to relearn dos.   Now how do I get help in dos?   Is it "copy 
/?" ? and the system will give me help.   :-)

  you have the explore which opens up a directory of your folders and files..
  then you have the explorer that is your browser ie6.
   I use to use the f-prot a long time back...

  without your winXP cd it is next to impossible to fix anything..
  you could try to install it and have it go into the c:\windows\system32 
folder to look for files and folders instead of the cd...
  when you click on the repair have it look there..Don't know if it will help 
or not..
  By all means find your xp cd...

  Hi Trapper,
  No, I've not tried safe mode.   I will when I get home.
  I don't have an emergency start up disk.   
  I don't have Norton's Disk Doctor.
  I do run AVG daily and I do an update inquiry daily.   Each day AVG catches a 
virus and it's always in a compressed file (zip) and I cannot identify the 
individual file.   I've not yet killed the entire zip file.   I will expand the 
files into a temp folder and run avg and then kill the individual file.

  My computer runs ok, except I cannot use Internet Explorer nor Windows 
Explorer (I understand they are related).   My software programs like Quicken, 
MsWorks, Word, Outlook Express, etc work ok.

  If I cannot find Windows XP disk, I'll have to go buy a new one.

  As we speak, I am running F-prot in dos mode.   I'm looking forward to the 
results.

  Carl

    Have you tried re-booting into safe mode??
    Have you tried your emergency startup disk?
    It's been awhile but I believe Norton's had something called Ndd ( Norton's 
disk Doctor). It allowed for you to fix a drive sector by sector, and I think 
it also has a virus program with it...
    Isn't your avg catching any of the virus's? If it's upto date it should be.

    Hi Martha,
    Hi Guys,

    Well I have a real problem.  My Windows xp, home edition will not restore 
itself.   I went back and attempted restore on 4 different dates and none would 
work.   I could only go back to January 25.    I looked again at the error 
report for the "tech details" and it shows 62 files were affected.

    I have some important tax records I cannot afford to lose.   Of course I 
will send copies to the other computer on this network (it is working ok), but 
I really would like to avoid a format.

    It looks like I need a virus program to run from dos.   

    Any suggestions?

    Carl

      Go to Start/Help and Support/Undo Changes to your computer with System 
Restore.

          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.
