Internet Explorer-Microsoft Updates

  User-DE0FD75A-D8BD-4CF8-91A89B975CB6753A 12:41 27 Sep 2005

I fomatted my hard drive and reloaded my "Windows ME". All other progs have been installed and appear to be working O.K. but when I select "Windws Update I get an I.E. message to say "component not installed try under " -Widow update". Selecting this or deleting the message will bring up the Windows Update window but when I press "scan for updates" the widow hangs at 0%. Furthermore Internet Explorer does not appear in my "add and remove" programme, although I can log on to the net without problem. Any help please?

Internet Explorer is often not found in Add/Remove.

Check the filing system for errors: Start, Run, 'sfc /scannow', OK.

Thanks Graham. I tried RUN scf/scannow but the reply said "file not found". I did have some success however with the support in Windows. The Faq's reproduced my problem and advised me to load Script Engine 5.6 from
This proved successful and I was able to download all the necessary updates.

Did I hear that IE is uninstallable in XP SP1 but not in XP SP2?
