I was doing a bit of spring cleaning on my pc and i was removing stuff that i THOUGHT was ok to delete but now i have a problem. When i launch internet explorer it cannot find any websites, i just says page cannot be downloaded. Im running windows 98 with BT Broadband. I thought i might have removed something to do with Broadband so i reinstalled it and its still not doing anything. It connects to the internet and it says its sending and receiving fine so all the hardware is working but i cannot get anything up. I still have my Windows CD, is there anything i can do without reinstalling windows (By the way im using a friends PC b4 people ask how im managin to write this!) PLEASE HELP!!!

Also i cannot use MSN messenger to log in, it says i have no internet connection, and that doesnt use explorer initially, so it cant be that, can it?
