I'm in a real mess.
A couple months ago, I downloaded MSN explorer with my MSN messenger. Now, I recently decided that had no further use for MSN explorer and wanted to delete it, but I couldn't find it in the Add/Remove programs listing. So I went to google to try and solve this problem. The webpage I went to instructed me to go to Add/Remove Windows components, and I saw MSN explorer in the listing. I checked the box to delete it and of course this required a restart. When I logged back into my computer, I was baffled to find that not only was MSN explorer still in the listing, but a lot of my programs that came with the computer had been deleted.
A listing of the programs I now know have been deleted are:
-It seems I cannot find the Volume button in my icon tray on my taskbar.
-All of the games in the all programs button.
and there are probably more.
I also notice that whenever I start up IE 6, that it tries to connect to http://xtoff
, but later cannot find the server. Although IE 6 works fine despite that problem.
I am wondering if anyone would know what I could do to get all of these programs back and get my IE 6 to work normally again.
