I upgraded my mother's netbook to windows 8 from windows 7 starter. All went well except that internet explorer is completely missing from the installation. I hit WIn and search for Internet explorer with no results in apps or files. I also searched
iexplore (name of the .exe) to no avail. I also searched for it through file explorer. I found the folder with some files, but no .exe. I copied the folder directory over from another windows 8 install and got it working, but still cannot get the metro
version working or to set it as the default browser. I still wont show up as an app or file under search. It wont come up as an option for default browser under "default programs" settings. There isnt even the "internet explorer performance" option under
the troubleshooting settings.
I have no clue what is going on or what options I have aside trying a fresh install.
thanks for any help.
32bit install windows 8 pro
