Windows 7: IE9 wont run

IE9 wont run

Something was deleted on the IE9 folder located at Program files(x86) by a 3rd party software(revo uninstaller pro) and now running IE9 x86 is impossible though the x64 version still works fine.

I tried reinstalling IE9 but no luck, version x86 wont run at all. How should i fix this?

Registry entries could also been deleted as revo uninstaller pro will search for leftovers and i blindly pressed the delete thinking i was uninstalling a game but somehow IE was included.

Fully uninstall IE9 using the following steps.

Quote:
  1. Click the Start button , type Programs and Features in the search box, and then click View installed updates in the left pane.
  2. Under Uninstall an update, scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section.
  3. Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.
  4. Click one of the following:
    • Restart now (to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 9, and restore the previous version of Internet Explorer).
    • Restart later (to wait until you shut down or restart your computer).
Make sure all of the Internet Explorer files are deleted from:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer
If they aren't, delete the folder.

Afterwards, reinstall the program and tell me what happens.

As a matter of interest.....
Have you a System Restore point created PRIOR to using Revo Uninstaller?

FYI in the future -

If /when you next use an Uninstaller - {always} make sure you have

1.a current System Restore point created.
2.a recent "Back up" of your computer- preferably to an external HD.

>>>I tried reinstalling IE9 but no luck
It may sound silly...... did you un-install IE9 first ?
If yes, how did you do that..... vis Programs and Features > view Installed Updates etc., or via system restore ?

Revo is a great tool .... but as you can see, if not used properly, you will get yourself into trouble.

I also found that out the hard way

Just one more reason why imaging programs are invaluable. At times like these, 20 mins to get back to normal. Here's a free one thats recommended around here, if you're interested:

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

Also, while you're figuring it all out, there's always FireFox...
