hi,i am having trouble opening internet explorer as every time i click on it,it says 'Windows cannot access the specified device,path,or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.' it has started after my little sister restarted the pc incorrectly and made the file corrupt and now i have no clue how to fix it/anyone know why?
Windows XP, Windows XP SP1, and Windows XP SP2: Reinstall or repair Windows XP To repair or reinstall Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP, complete the following procedure while you are logged on as an administrator: Use the System File Checker tool to scan all of the protected files on your computer: Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type sfc /scannow, and then click OK.
I THINK that IE6 is install only from the internet- adding itself onto previous IE. As far as I know there is no other way of getting it. IE5s are usually on any ISP installation disc. Have a look at yours by inserting disc and opening Windows Explorer and clicking your drive D [or whatever is your cdrom drive letter]. This will show you the entire contents of your ISP installation disc and you should be able to select IE5, install it and then upgrade it.
