If using ie10 the first link will apply to ie9 as well,

Activate EPM if on a 64 bit version of windows,

Internet Explorer is a part of windows. It cannot be uninstalled. Disabled yes, but not completely removed.


If you navigate to Computer- double click the C drive-program files-internet explorer,
and right click on iexplore.exe and choose send to-desktop. This will create a shortcut to
internet explorer on your desktop. You can then rename the shortcut to Internet Explorer.
Then you can right click the shortcut and pin to the start menu and taskbar if you would like.


This bug is usually caused when a Windows 7 pc has internet explorer 8 or 9 and is updated to version 10 or higher. The icon can sometimes fail to properly reassign a desktop shortcut back when the new version is installed.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Ok, first lets try this.

1.) Follow this tutorial, read it entirely before starting:

Internet Explorer - Reset

Once you have done that, go back to my post and reread it. I did not ask you to left click on it, I asked you to right click on iexplore.exe and choose sent to desktop.

2.) Directions again: Click Click computer. Double click local disk C. Double click the program files folder.

Double click the internet explorer folder. Look in the folder for iexplore.exe Right click on it, and chose send to.

Then click desktop (create shortcut). Close the window. On your desktop, right click the new shortcut iexplore.exe and choose rename.

Then Name it "Internet Explorer" without the quotes.

Then right click the shortcut again and choose pin to startmenu and pin to taskbar.

3.) I would also like to you to follow this tutorial, and use option 2, steps 1 and 2 please:

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please tell us the results of the scan.


Once this is done you should be able to use internet explorer without issue.
