Another program is Limewire when i tryed to open it a box would pop up and say "Windows is searchin for Limewire .exe" but it neva find it, the last program is Internet Explorer when i tryed to open this a box poped up sayin "Windows can not find iexplorer.exe. this program is needed for opening files of type files". Now i hav looked on the C:\ and i can not find the folders for either Limewire or Internet Explorer in the program files folder and i was wonderin if they could hav been deleated form the C:\.
So i was wonderin what could hav caused this, and is there anythin i can do tp help i hav tryed to system restore but it will not let me restore to befor the program stoped workin. So is there anything u can do to help me fix this?? if so please help thanx alot.

U might want to run a virus scan. There are programs that can recover deleted files, I just can't remember any names atm. Try google.

and if your friend cannot access internet due to only one browser put the IE6 setup in a shared folder or on a thumb drive or something. Or even install Mozilla or another browser.
