Welcome to Seven Forums libby22. How did you usually open IE? From an icon on the desktop? Is that what is missing?

I'm sure it was not IE6, but in any case, let's see if we can find whatever IE you do have. Let's start with this

Click on the start lower left> Click on All Programs> Do you see an Internet explorer icon?

If so, left click on it, does Internet explorer open? If so, see if you can surf normally?

Let us know how that goes, we can proceed from there. A Guy
