You can't have lost Internet Explorer if you are able to view websites, unless you are using a different browser.

Do you get any error message when you try to print?

You could try a repair click here

Oh, and please don't SHOUT.

I HAVE TRIED THE REPAIR BUT UNFORTUNATLY IT DID NOT WORK. I DO GET AN ERROR MESSAGE WHEN TRYING TO PRINT AND IT READS AS FOLLOWS:-
PRINTERS FOLDER.
THERE WAS AN ERROR WRITING TO COM 3FOR THE PRINTER (EPSON STYLUS PHOTO 830 SERIES)
CANNOT ACCESS THE PORT. IT MAY BE IN USE BY ANOTHER PROGRAMME.
QUIT OTHER PROGRAMMES AND TRY PRINTING AGAIN.
THERE ARE NO OTHER PROGRAMMES IN USE WHEN TRYING TO PRINT.

Your printer seems to be trying to print to the wrong port - Com3 is aserial port, printers usually use a parallel or USB cable.

Check the setup of your printer ports, try uninstalling your printer and Epson software, reinstall making careful note of which port it thinks it should be printing to when choosing your setup options.

My printer will work but not when trying to print from the internet only. Do you still recommend that I uninstall and reinstall printer?

click here click here

but I don't think that's the problem as they don't generate an error message. I think jazzypop is on the right lines.

Further to my problem, when I double click on the internet explorer icon, on my screen appears the page cannot be displayed message and at the bottom of the page it reads cannot find server or DNS error.I hope this is of help to you out there, to help me find a remedy.
