If Internet Explorer does not appear in the Add/Remove Programs box in the Control Panel (because you have no backup IE) there is another easy way to access the repair tool. Go to Start, Programs, Accessories and, on the drop down menu, click on System Tools and, finally, on System Information. On the System Information window, click on Tools and in the drop down box click on Internet Explorer Repair Tool.

For Windows XP users (thanks to djdanska)
Here are two ways to reinstall Windows IE for Win XP:
1. The only way to repair Internet Explorer is to have sfc check the system files by clicking on the Start Menu, then Run, and type in:
sfc /scannow
and then click on OK.

2. Another way (which has worked for me):
# Start the Registry Editor
# Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Active Setup \ Installed Components \ {89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}
# right-click the IsInstalled value, and then click Modify
# Change the value data, from 1 to 0
# Close the registry editor
# Download and install Internet Explorer 6.

The above will let you reinstall the Internet Explorer 6 browser component. To reinstall Outlook Express 6, change the IsInstalled value from the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Active Setup \ Installed Components \ {44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}
