Default Can't access the internet

Hi...

Yesterday I was trying to remove unwanted files/programs from my computer through the "Add/Remove programs" icon. I ended up deleting some Windows 2000 Hotfix KB??? files, about 3 of them.

Now I tried to open Internet Explorer then I get the message "Can't find 'www.wits.ac.za' Make sure the path or Internet address is correct". (www.wits.ac.za is my homepage}After I cancel that it does open the browser but nothing comes up.

Then on the address bar I type an address say 'www.yahoo.com' then I get a reply on the address bar "C:\Documents%20and%20Settings\Administrator\Deskt op\www.yahoo.com". At the top bar there's a message 'Cannot find server - Microsoft Internet Explorer' and on the page 'The page cannot be displayed'. Once I load MSWORD and type the address on the page and click on it...the page does come up but not when I click on the IE icon. I did a Windows Update on the same PC and I went through the process of installing the recommemnded Hotfix Files but I still experience the problem. Please help....

Go into control panel, add/remove programs...

Click add/remove on IE and click "repair"

This should sort it out!!

Don't keep on asking this question. There are many ways of getting to the internet. Other computers, such as; friends, others in the same house, laptop, and even the library.

STOP ASKING THIS STUPID QUESTION!!!
