I have a 32-bit 64-bit Windows 7 Laptop that I got after my two other computers were stolen by 3 creeps who don't know the difference between mine and yours, grrr!

Anyway, it came with internet explorer but it was always knocking me off and i got tired of it and uninstalled it thinking I could get a new version. Repair didn't seem to work.

Anyway, now no matter what version I try to download it just says Explorer not available for your computer FIGURE IT OUT YOURSELF basically, meantime the print is so small i need a microscope and I'm going nutz and yes more than a little out of sorts but please why do they sell this stuff and then just say tuff it doesn't work sucker

I used the troubleshooter and it did all kinds of stuff and then said nothing here to help. None of their self-help helps so GRRRR??

I'm sorry, I know its not your fault but everything I touch is WRONG and I'm backed up on my work and all I'm doing is trying to search and meanwhile going blind in the process????

32bit or 64 bit, which one? 64 bit can run some 32 bit apps, but not the other way around.
You can not just uninstall IE as it is part of the OS, did you just remove the icon for it? Go to Start and type in Internet Explorer and see if it shows.
