I want to reinstall IE on my PC. The problem is that when I go to the control panel it's not there to uninstall. Any suggestions? Thanks.

IE is not an installed program so doesnt appear on the list, when in control panel click add or remove windows features and you will see it listed

depending on what version you have eg IE10 i think you can click view installed updates above it and uninstall that way

It's better to Reset rather than uninstalling,
If you choose to Uninstall ie10 see this,
"if" you are intending to re-install ie10,
After Resetting ie9 or 10,
I would add this to the tutorials process
But you can Turn Internet explorer off and boot when prompted,
Then repeat and turn Internet explorer back on,
Turning off Internet explorer only Hides it,
This will not allow you to Re-download Internet explorer,
If your Windows update system is set to Automatically Download and Install windows updates (Important and Recommended) ie10 will return after you shutdown or boot your computer.

If you state the issue your having possibly we might suggest other trouble shooting steps.
Include what Third party security suite you have installed and any third party toolbars are being used as well.
