  • Internet Options are also available at Control Panel. If not do Add/Remove programs from there, select Windows Components from the sidebar and add the missing parts (e.g. can reinstall IE from there and other Internet-related components of Windows). Do have the CD/DVD of Windows available though, you may be asked for it (sometimes the installer will find the files on your PC, but many times the installation media will be needed).


    Also, use http://safety.live.com and do a full maintenance, then a full system scan for viruses. Also try using housecall (free) from http://www.trend.com and if you don't have antivirus at your system (the previous ones I mentioned run online from the browser on demand), install AVAST Personal edition (free for home use) or download the professional version trial from http://www.avast.com. Make sure after it installs to reply yes to do a scan at reboot.
