How can I download and install a browser on a new installation of Windows 7E?

If my only web browser is no working, is there a way to get another one using only the computer in question (i.e. don't use someone else's computer)? In this hypothetical situation the computer is running a clean install of Windows 7, so there aren't any OEM programs installed.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I couldn't find an identical question. @random do you care to list a few for us? – JannieT Jan 17 '13 at 17:57
Apart from the link mentioned at the top of the question? @jan – random Jan 17 '13 at 21:07
@random the answers here were much more helpful, because the community consensus in the other question was, "you don't need to download a browser". This question is different, because you do need to download a browser. If you didn't close it we might have had a good answer for downloading chrome installer, for example.

If you are using Windows 7, as you mention, you can open My Computer and in the address bar type in : (Opera Browser)

or (Firefox)

You can then navigate the folders and find the version that you want.

Connect to the ISV's FTP site with the ftp command line client and download it that way.
