Got my computer back from the repairman yesterday. New motherboard, new hard
drive. Pentium 4, 80 gig and 512 K running XP 64. Use AVG free, AdAware SE,
and Pest Patrol. Closed the internet page I was on, and my IE icon
disappeared from my quick launch tray, as did the one on the start menu and
the listing in all programs. Called the repair guy, he had never had this
happen to anyone else. Couldn't find it through search or anything else he
suggested. Not there in my computer, even though I have a IE folder, but no
blue E icon anywhere. I downloaded Mozilla which runs just fine. Tried
downloading IE7 again, and it says it downloaded, but still no icon anywhere.
Only place I can find the program listed is add/remove programs, but it will
only uninstall, does not repair. Would buying the $10 disk from Microsoft
make it work, or do you have any other suggestions?
