    I am unable to access Internet Explorer 6.0. I get the message that
    it is unable to find iexplore.exe.
    I had just finished downloading an upgrade for DirectX from Microsoft
    support, which apparently has caused the problem somehow.
    I would uninstall the upgrade but am unable to locate it, and
    Microsoft will not support uninstalling it.
    Does anyone know how to get the iexplore.exe file?
    I am using Win98SE.

    Copy/Paste the following into your Start / Run box (all one line):

    rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g

    If that doesn't work, try:

    rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 C:\windows\inf\ie.inf

    And if THAT doesn't work, try just:

    rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance

    Right click on the Start button then choose Search to find the
    iexplore.exe file.

    Then make a new shortcut to the file on your desktop.

    If it's not anywhere on the machine then you'll have to download it
