Windows 7: Lost Hyperlinks in Excel and a lost Internet Explorer 11

Lost Hyperlinks in Excel and a lost Internet Explorer 11

Dear Forum

After constant stress with online software changing my PC settings (adobe one of many) I wanted to separate my main computer from the internet. This I tried. I turned off broadband. I then removed all my browsers, virus and malware protection and gave my hard-drive a bit of a "spring clean". Trouble is, I am no longer able to use Excel 2007 Hyperlink. If I click on a Hyperlink I get the message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator".

I have googled the problem and was led to and the solution to the lost Hyperlinks was due to me deleting my browsers. I reloaded google, downloaded and ran the wrong version of Internet Explorer 11. I Have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and I installed EIE11_EN-US_WOL_WIN764.EXE. IE has installed but its invisible. It is not in my control panel/ programs. I tried to install the correct IE but I have remove the wrong one first. I am assuming I will have to remove the renegade IE manually.

All help appreciated.

My spring clean involved deleting a lot of the Appdata Local and Roaming folders.



I promise I won't ever try to separate my PC from the master ever again, I just want to use my Excel; its my living.

I have an HP Zeon and 3 disks. Disk 1 is called Restore Plus1. Disk 1 wants to format my hard drive; I just want my Excel back.

My problem will only be cured by reinstating IE. Well, I could reformat and start again and I am considering the option.
