Groove GFS Browser Helper

    Question

  • I just did a complete reinstall of windows 7 pro and office 2010 pro. When I was setting up the add-ons for IE10, I accidentally disabled the Groove GFS Browser Helper. I can't get it to re-enable (using the obvious method by selecting "enable" in the add-on manager. I've seen numerous questions about how to do this, but no answers. I tried doing a repair of office, but that did not fix the problem.

    You may want to try asking your question at http://answers.microsoft.com, particularly in the Internet Explorer section.

     For more information about where to post your question please see this thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie10-windows_8/what-ismicrosoft-groove-gfs-browser-helper-win8/c3921086-879a-48dc-8b85-111d83d0e583

    but anyways i can describe you about integration of IE & Microsoft add-on including groove:
     
    Internet Explorer 10 is designed to provide an add-on free experience, and will play HTML5 and many Adobe Flash Player videos without needing to install a separate add-on. Add-ons and toolbars will only work in Internet Explorer for the desktop. To view a page that requires add-ons in Internet Explorer, swipe down or right-click to bring up the Address bar, tap or click the Page tools button, and then tap or click View on the desktop.

    You can view, enable, and disable the list of add-ons that can be used by Internet Explorer for the desktop. Add-ons you can manage include browser helper objects, ActiveX controls, toolbar extensions, explorer bars, browser extensions, search providers, Accelerators, and Tracking Protection settings.

    To manage add-ons

    Open Internet Explorer for the desktop.

    Tap or click the Tools button, and then tap or click Manage add-ons.

    Under Show, tap or click All add-ons, and then do one of the following:

    To disable an add-on, tap or click it, and then tap or click Disable.

    To enable an add-on, tap or click it, and then tap or click Enable.

    Tap or click Close.

    If you are not able to enable then post your question please see this thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie10-windows_8/what-ismicrosoft-groove-gfs-browser-helper-win8/c3921086-879a-48dc-8b85-111d83d0e583

  • I found the fix to re-enabling the BHO for Groove GFS and Groove Site ActiveX!

    Instead of re-creating the user profile, I realize that if you go to the BHO dll file location, I found it here:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

    I am using Office 2010 32bit, but I have OneDrive 2013 for business installed, and am using Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

    When I go to the folder, I found grooveex.dll file, and I simply renamed it to grooveex.dll.old, and after which, turn on IE and tools > manage add-ons, and ENABLE the groove Add-ons. It simply worked!

    hope this helps all of you out there!
