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.
