revo from my research looks like its a good uninstall tool, however, that being said, Internet explorer, being microsoft, is very much integrated into windows registry. Revo, may (not sure about this its just a theory) have done to good of a job, and erased certain parts of your registry, causing the problems your having now. do you know how to do a system restore? if not heres a quick tutorial. go to start > programs > accessories > system tools > System restore, then from the menu choose restore to an earlier time. it will not erase any of your files. try that, and see if it works or not.

This is probably the easiest way, under the circumstances, to use System Restore. Usually when one starts in safe mode a box will come up asking if you want to use System Restore or start in safe mode. If that comes up when booting into safe mode, just pick System Restore.

Did you by any chance go into MSConfig and check the box to start in safe mode?
