After updating my lap top which has Windows 7, it installed Explorer 9 plus other updates, I now find I have no explorer at all infact it wont even load home page being BBC, and have tried restore to earlier date but it will not load explorer has anyone experienced this and how does one correct the problem.

Have you tried using the command Run, then typing in iexplore.exe instead of using the Internet Explorer icon?

Try this:-

  1. Close all running programs.
  2. Click 'Start', and then click 'Control Panel'.
  3. Click 'Find and Fix Problems' under System and Security.
  4. Click 'View All' on the task pane on the left.
  5. Click 'Internet Explorer Performance'.
  6. Click 'Next' in the dialogue box.

The troubleshooter will run and will try to fix any identified problems automatically. When it's finished Click 'Close', and then try IE9

If that doesn't work we can think again.

At times, you may face installation issues with your Internet Explorer 9 Beta. Installation may fail due to the insufficient hard disk space. Also, malware infection blocks the installation of Internet Explorer 9 Beta. Improper installation, incompatible Internet Explorer versions (old version of Internet Explorer is not compatible with Windows 7 Operating System), etc. may arise while installing Internet Explorer 9 Beta in Windows 7 Operating
