  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.
