If you mean Internet Explorer try going to Control Panel/ add or remove programs/Add or remove windows component and reinstaa IE from you CD. If you mean Windows Explorer Try a system file scan Strat/run/type sfc /scannow OK.

That should read sfc /scannow. then click OK. (Note the space between sfc and /)

no it's not internet explorer, it's whenever i go into my pictures or any other folders on the desktop there is no longer any option to go backwards and forwards with the backwards and forwards buttons

i did a system file scan and it didn't seem to come up with anything, in fact it didn't tell me anything at all.

OK, right click on an empty part of the toolbar, click customise. Make sure that they are included in "Current Toolbar Buttons" if not put them in. Otherwise have you moved your toolbar in such a way it has covered them up.

By the way, don't Emperor Penguin's eat rawprawns ?

It may be under, explorer > tools > folder options > browse folders. One setting is for, open each folder in the same window. The other is, open each folder in a separate window.

Oh good.

Perhaps a diet excluding prawns would be beneficial. lol
