I suspected that my Internet Explorer browser might become corrupted so I attempted to re-install it from an old PC Advisor disc. This took me to the PC Advisor web site where I was asked to register. OK. I tried to download a copy of Internet Explorer and was told that wasn't available. Now I can't access my old copy of Internet Explorer because PC Advisor has taken over the Internet Explorer desktop icon and I can't download a new copy so I have no access to Internet Explorer. I've tried to e mail them but all I get is an automated response saying they don't solve there own problems.

Any suggestions?

I forgot about "system restore". I'm a user, not an expert. I still don't understand clicking my Internet explorer icon opened the PC Advisor page, But I've returned to a better time.

"clicking my Internet explorer icon opened the PC Advisor page"

Which probably means that you have the PC Advisor page set as your home page, doesn't it?

Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>double click on Internet Options>General tab.

Change the first field's entry to the www address of your ISP and set as Default.

In the Connections tab ensure that your ISP is the Default connection.

You can install the latest version of IE from:

click here

Then download any security or critical updates which may be available.

Using an old cover disk brings you, not unexpectedly, an old version of IE...:-)
