  • Manage add ons keeps coming up empty, tried making text smaller, going back to other IE versions at IE 8 now, nothing helps.

    My ALL PROGRAM SHOWS IE EXPLORER 64 BIT AND I have IE 8 32 BIT installed. I tried re entering them as this indicates and it only lasts a few hours at best.

    Create a batch file and name it C:\reregister.bat

    To create the batch file, open Notepad and copy the list below to the file. Click File in upper left, then Save As. In the Save As , Select All File Types. In the file name field, type in C:\reregister.bat and press Enter

    regsvr32 /u /s urlmon.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s mshtml.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s shdocvw.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s browseui.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s jscript.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s vbscript.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s scrrun.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s msxml.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s actxprxy.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s softpub.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s wintrust.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s dssenh.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s rsaenh.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s gpkcsp.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s sccbase.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s slbcsp.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s cryptdlg.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s oleaut32.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s ole32.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s shell32.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s initpki.dll

    regsvr32 /u /s msjava.dll

    regsvr32 /s urlmon.dll

    regsvr32 /s mshtml.dll

    regsvr32 /s shdocvw.dll

    regsvr32 /s browseui.dll

    regsvr32 /s jscript.dll

    regsvr32 /s vbscript.dll

    regsvr32 /s scrrun.dll

    regsvr32 /s msxml.dll

    regsvr32 /s actxprxy.dll

    regsvr32 /s softpub.dll

    regsvr32 /s wintrust.dll

    regsvr32 /s dssenh.dll

    regsvr32 /s rsaenh.dll

    regsvr32 /s gpkcsp.dll

    regsvr32 /s sccbase.dll

    regsvr32 /s slbcsp.dll

    regsvr32 /s cryptdlg.dll

    regsvr32 /s oleaut32.dll

    regsvr32 /s ole32.dll

    regsvr32 /s shell32.dll

    regsvr32 /s initpki.dll

    regsvr32 /s msjava.dll


    After you have created the batch file, close all instances of IE and Explorer

    Start> Type Run in search box> Click on Run in the results above> Type

    C:\reregister.bat

    and press Enter

    I HAVE GONE from IE 9.0 to IE 10 and back to 9.0 and finally 8.0 however the mange add ons remains for only a few hours.


    Thank you

    On what OS?   Maybe on XP but in W7 you should be elevating a cmd window (e.g. running your .bat as an administrator) for it to do anything.   Take off all those  /s (silent) switches to find out what your script is actually doing.   E.g. if you were unlucky enough to actually get the  /u  (unregister) to work and the other (re-register) not to work you would not have any idea about that.

  • Hi,

    Please check the issue with SFC command:

    Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

    @ Nicholas

    Is that step 1?   Or does sfc now actually do something about the registry requirements for any COM modules found?  

    I previously checked in XP that sfc does not do any registry changes equivalent to a non-missing module's  DllRegisterServer  or  DllInstall  but admit I haven't rechecked this observation since in later OS.   Also, I was never brave enough to delete a module just to test the idea that sfc might re-register a missing module after it had restored it.   I think that both facts need to be documented somewhere along with appropriate procedures to do what the OP is trying to do.  Seems like a good candidate for a real IE troubleshooter (e.g.  something more complete and comprehensive than the two existing IE troubleshooters mentioned here: MSDT )

     
    FYI
