If your Win 8.1 is 64 bit then iexplorer.exe will be found in both "Program Files (x86)" and "Program Files". The former is the 32 bit version, the latter is the 64 bit version, which most folk would choose.

If your computer is 32 bit there will be no "Program Files (x86)" and iexplore.exe will be found in "Program Files".

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Maybe it's hiding in the recycle bin. Did you look there? Or maybe it's there but just not showing. Some info here:

Good thought DAVEINCAPS. Unfortunately IE doesn't seem to be one of the desktop choices, not on my Win 8.1 anyhow.
