    I have a two month old Toshiba and deleted IE8 because of crashes. Trying to
    find the correct download to reinstall. The IE8 homepage just says it is
    included in windows 7 but does not show the download file....... ARRRG. Tried
    Vista IE8 download file but message says it not the correct operating system.

    How did you delete it? I cannot see an entry for it in my Windows 7
    "Program Features - uninstall programs". However, there is an entry in
    "Turn windows features on or off". Did you turn it off there? If so
    you should be able to turn it on again.

    If not, can't you get it off your setup/recovery disk?

    He didn't Uninstall it, he deleted it. He navigated with the Windows
    Explorer to the folder and _deleted_ it.

    He's gonna need the Win7 Installation disc to fix this one if he can't find
    IE8 to download.

    I know he said _deleted_ but (and this does not necessarily apply to
    the OP) some people out there are too computer illiterate to know the
    difference between delete, uninstall and turn off a windows feature
    which is why I asked how he deleted it. Nowhere in his message does he
    say that he went to the folder and deleted the folder and all its
    contents, although this is likely.

    >He's gonna need the Win7 Installation disc to fix this one if he can't find
    >IE8 to download.


    Just as I suggested in my original post.

    You are correct in all that you say, but since there is no Uninstall, the
    only thing left is to delete the file(s), or worse, the folder.

    Or the OP might have gone to "Add/Remove windows components" and
    unchecked Internet Explorer there and thought that deleted it. We
    don't know if he/she has actually been to the Internet Explorer folder
    to see if it is still there or if he/she really did delete the whole
    folder.

    In Win7, it'd be...

    Turn Windows features on or off:
