Hi Paul,
Here is the information from MS;
How to Reinstall or Repair Internet Explorer and
Outlook Express in Windows XP (Q318378)

How do I repair Internet Explorer in Windows=AE XP?
Revised - 03/03/2002
The ability to Repair Internet Explorer does not exist
in the version that ships with Windows XP.  This
feature only becomes available after you upgrade to a
newer version.  This is normal and has been this way
since Windows 98 and IE4.

However, you can reinstall IE in Windows XP by
clicking Start, Run and entering the following

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection
DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf

You will need to have your XP CD available.

Some people have problems with the command line above.
 A small VB Script that will execute the command for
you can be downloaded here.  Save the file to your
hard drive and double click it to run IE Setup.

I hope this helps.
