After my most recent blunder, having thought I really blew it by deleting the browser, I tried Control Panel this time and finally got the option to reset! Bless you, whichever one of you who told me to delete IE8!

Previously I had reset IE8 in CP and things worked fine. I learned to ignore the intro to IE8, knowing full well that to look at the intro would jam it up. But I accidentally jammed it by right-clicking the toolbar. I explained the rest in my previous message. Reset in CP no longer functioned. By deleting the browser I still got nothing, but it finally allowed RESET to work in CP.

Once I reset IE and then tried opening IE, it finally came up and said "Thanks for choosing Internet Explorer 7". However, I'm still a little suspicious because the format of that page is identical to the one in IE8. We'll see how it goes.

If all goes well, I'm on my way to find Mozilla!

OK, I've really screwed it up this time. Any help anyone can offer I would
really apreciate.

Internet Explorer is a goner for real this time. I know, you told me to get Mozilla and I really intended to but just didn't get around to doing it. I
was able to fix IE8, so I kept using it.

This time it locked up completely so that I couldn't use the reset button.
I tried doing it via Control Panel but it didn't work - the instructions
explained that IE had to be open, but IE doesn't respond.

So I tried a suggestion someone here made.  I deleted IE8 with the
expectation that by doing so I would uncover IE7. Program doesn't respond.
I can't get on the internet to download another browser.

So how do I get a browser without being able to get on the internet? Do you think IE might be on one of my Dell disks? Geez, I promise to listen to you
guys and follow through on getting Mozilla this time if I can just get on
the net.
