"~IE Lite" or close to it was invented in Win98 days of olde. Installing this removed all kinds of unwanted crud that's part of the stock OS--without messing up IE.

I think someone came up with a version for W2K. Dunno about XP, though. Might as well search for it.

If you can't find this lifesaver--and of course it won't work because you already messed with your IE installation, you're in for the high jump.

Ask me about removing the "please, gimme gimme MSN!" files from a stock 98SE installation. The answer is, DON'T.

I'd try cloasters suggestion. Also have you tryed last know good settings upon Boot? (guessing here from my 2000 PRO)

Finally, try to reinstall form the CD. Then Tank it, except your lossses and get back as best you can....YOU SHOULD HAVE GHOSTED THE MUDDER!!

XP has a built in system restore feature as well. I back up every so often with 3rd party, but have had to use this feature once. Its worth a shot, just make sure you have a copy of everything you need that you've added after the time it will restore to, if not, you'll lose it during the restore. Other that that, looke like a nuke and pave for you maybe...bummer

I believe the best way to repair an XP install without formatting is as follows:

1) Boot from the XP CD.
2) When the install starts, it should offer a couple of options. Select the "Install Windows XP" Option.
3) At this point, you should see a couple more options. Select "Repair." If you don't see the "Repair" option, that basically means there's been too much corruption and you can't do it this way.

XP should go through the motions of installing the OS all over again including asking for the CD Key, but when it's finished, it keeps all of your old settings and you don't have to reinstall all your programs again. You do however, have to reinstall all updates and patches. I've done this several times now because I wanted to move my HD from machine to machine without reinstalling the programs and it's worked for me every time.

Good Luck,

Mook.

I'd go with either mookies repair option, cuz I've tried it and it works great, just takes as long as the install, lol....or go with Oden's System Restore option....unless u disabled System restore yourself, it is enabled by default....anytime you install a program it creates a restore point, so I'm sure u can find a restore point that suits you....just go to start menu--programs--accesories--system tools--system restore, good luck

FYI:

Windows XP comes with Internet Explorer 6. Microsoft has made IE part of the core operating system. If you think IE is screwed up, and want to repair it, you must use the sfc command:
Sfc /scannow

which will scan and restore protected system files (which IE is).
