Where is internet explorer.exe hidden?

  cdb 14:17 12 Sep 2004

I'm tring to find this so that I can put a shortcut for internet explorer on my brothers desktop. It's a Tiny computer that has had IE hijacked by supadial and I can't find the origional IE anywhere. (yes I've looked in hidden folders) It is there somewhere as a program opened IE6 sp1 for me, but I couldn't find any evidence of where it came from.

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

Sorry VoG it isn't there, that's why I'm stuck. I'm showing hidden files and I just can't find it. It isn't in the same place as on my pc ie in that folder. :(

Go to Control Panel/Add or remove programs/ add or remove Winows Components see if it is ticked, you could always try a reinstall using your XP CD from there.

Well done that man, that cured it, I now have an internet explorer icon.

Wish I'd thought of that ;)

Thank you

If you have the same problem with Outlook Express it's msimn.exe
