Since you already have broken your system it would be nice for others to know if any of these solutions work.
Backup your important things before doing anything!!!

Give it a try if you have a restore point before you started cleaning out IE.
It's a very long shot but i think you are prepared to try anything.
And once again: Backup all important stuff before fiddling arond. You're in a situation that suddenly XP won't boot anymore.
Back on sunday and hope to see that you fixed it!!!

After Install, Run dont fix anything, and create a log file and post it back for us thank you this will help us out greatly
This might be more simple
You may be asked to insert (Win XP Disk) for this, if you do not have this ignore these steps below and go to Step5:
ATTENTION: Do a (System Restore Point) first then go to step 1:
To do this: Click Start, Help and Support, Click Undo Changes To Your Computer with System Restore, in the radio dial button click Create a (System Restore Point) Click Next and
Let Windows do it’s thing after it is all done continue.
Step1: Click Start, click Control Panel, Click Add or Remove Programs,
Step2: In the left side of the splash box select Add Remove Windows Components.
Step3: In (Windows Components Wizard) select MSN Explorer there are two IE’S make sure you check the one with the (butterfly) in it, it should be about a 13.5 megabyte file.
(Caution) check this one and this only please, if you think you checked mark something else by mistake click Cancel and start from (Step1) again.
Step4: Click Next and let Windows do its things, it ask you a few questions along the way which could be ignored such as setting up e-mail accounts and such, if it ask what kind of connection you use for the internet check the appropriate box like (Dial up) etc…
When all is good and done you will need to Reboot Computer so that the process will be completed.
Step5: Now when you are back in Windows click Start, All Programs, Find Windows Update, should be on the top fourth one down that says Windows Update and click for Update this is because a recent flaw has been discovered in IE6 and you can download all Patches and Service Packs for your system, this is (Critical).
It is best to leave bundled Microsoft Products intact with your OS, here is the url for downloading Moziila and Firefox if you do not want to use IE6
When you load these browser's and start the Internet Browser Windows will ask you if you want to set that paticular Browser as Default you can click Yes
If you find this help useful please reply to your post
