cant open Internet Explorer, control panel blank?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsme.general (More info?)

my friend has windows me. she wanted to download msn messenger and when she
did it said she needed to upgrade to internet explorer version 6. when she
did she couldnt type in seach bars or type at all on aol, and IE wouldnt even
open up. she went to a website and looked for help. the site said to go to
control panel and delete a certain folder in IE. when she did it didnt work
all her files in control panel were gone as well as files under my computer
and documents. so she cant uninstall IE. I suggested system restore. but when
she tried she got something to pop up which said microsoft internet explorer
error 29.if you have any suggestions on what to do that would be great.
thanks, josie.

    Your friend wouldn't happen to be running Norton software, would she?
    If so, try booting to Safe Mode, and running the installation of Internet
    Explorer again, from there.
