    But, since this is a part of internet explorer, I highly recommend using the following tool to accomplish this:

    You can probably copy from the c:\i386 folder to the c:\windows\system32 folder.

    The ability to Repair Internet Explorer does not exist in the version that ships with Windows XP.  This feature only becomes available after you upgrade to a newer version.  This is normal and has been this way since Windows 98 and IE4.

    However, you can reinstall IE in Windows XP by clicking Start, Run and entering the following command:

    rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf

    You will need to have your XP CD available.

    Some people have problems with the command line above.  A small VB Script that will execute the command for you can be downloaded here.
     Save the file to your hard drive and double click it to run IE Setup.

    Well 70sdiver, i really don't recommend using the IEFIX tool, I have suffered the same problem for ages and I found the solution by registering some dlls related to IE..

    Reinstall IE manually..
    Click Start/Run/Paste the following command:

    rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\ie.inf

    After Installing it, Download the file and move it to it's original folder which by default is located in %systemroot%\system32 Folder, Then re-registering these dlls.

    Start > Run > type in each line and click OK:

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 msxml3.dll
    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 atl.dll
    regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
    regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
    regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
    regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
    regsvr32 initpki.dll
