IE8 Add-Ons Won't load after uninstalling IE10 and IE 9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We had a bunch of Win7 x64 machines unintentionally update from IE8 to IE9 and then IE10. After reverting back to IE8, the security settings seem to be preventing certain add-ons from loading. Under Tools --> Manage Add-Ons --> Currently Loaded Add-ons, only 1 or 2 of the 10 usual add-ons are showing. I've tried re-installing some of the add-ons (an ActiveX one for example) and they will show up under currently loaded until internet explorer is restarted and they are gone again. I've tried resetting IE8 to defaults and running a system file check. I've tried resetting all security settings for the various zones and the add-ons just will not load. Any ideas for this scenario?
