Did you actually go into the Program Files folder and delete it? You'd better not have.

The only thing you can do is reinstall from disc, unless you knew tricks (whcih ecist) which actually undo delete function

This is my first post, so be kind. From what I've seen on the Microsoft website, there is only 1 version of IE 7. That works for XP & Vista. Hope I was helpful.

SysRestore is a waste of drive space.

here, this app will download for you both IE7 AND FF3. [app made by me, ofcourse...]

http://rapidshare.co.../wbDDL.exe.html

makes use of ActiveSync APIS, so it will download much faster than a normal Download.

It downloads it but says that this version of IE7 is not supported with this operating system.

Have you tried Add/Remove programs in Vista and used the Add/Remove Windows Components to reinstall IE7? Usually you can uncheck it and recheck it and it installs again.

Negatory. It simply removes it as a default and removes icons for it, but it does not uninstall it, by unchecking, nor does it reinstall it.

Reapplying a service pack may take care of it, however. As mentioned, a repair would probably work. Its very unlikely system restore would have helped you here, even if it was enabled. I disagree about it being a waste of space, however.

Methinks you do not understand how a repair works.

Unless of course you have an OEM recovery disk, then yes that wouldn't be desirable.

ok, then why not install Firefox, and use it just long enough to go get IE7 for Visat, then just delete Firefox (Uninstall).. I mean, come on, it is not that hard of a thing to think of, and it gets the job done

Also, some programs (Stardock's Impulse app for example) require IE on the system. (They use the IE rendering engine.) If IE goes missing, everything can go screwy. It has happened to me before when I was still using my old XP computer. Once IE got corrupted, help wouldn't load, Control Panels wouldn't load, ect.

I would try backing up everything you can't afford to lose onto a few DVDs or CDs (yes, it's old fashioned, but it works!), then format and reinstall the OS. I recommend CD Burner XP for this: http://cdburnerxp.se/

(REMEMBER: Windows cannot function without IE. It's one of MS's many flaws.)

so, if your online through mozilla right now, then why not just go download IE? How hard of a thing is it for you to do?

as far as you looking dumb, your the one that deleted the folder. stop shooting yourself in the foot.

and for all of you non-programmers out there, now this. the webbrowser control is ALLWAYS on the system. showdoc.dll

you know how you see the icons in explorer? rendered with showdoc. seriously. I have uninstalled IE before, opened up a new VB project, and sill be able to add the webbrowser control.

try typing in a URL in the address bar of explorer.

and did you shift-delete the files form the harddrive, or have you checked the recycle bin?

how about using Recuva? that is a delete-restoring app.

there are SO many ways to fix this, and your not looking. you freaked the hell out and went running to us to fix your stupidity.

lol, if this was my section of the forum, i would ban you for stupidity and lack of thought.

Why don't you make second partition?

Back up your music pictures etc to it

Reinstall vista on C and then just use the back up from the second partition.

Yeah you lose applications.

But it basically backs up everything even temp files and history
