Answers

  • You should be able to restore the file from C:\Windows\System32\DllCache

    I would advise against using ArnavSharma's method because DLL-files.com have the Windows 7 version of the file, extremely likely to cause problems.

    If you can't get the file from DllCache folder and have updated to Internet Explorer 7 or 8, download Internet Explorer 7 or 8 (depending on which version you have installed currently), extract the contents of the setup package using software such as 7-Zip and then you should be able to get the file. (After installing 7-Zip, Right click the setup executable > 7-Zip > any of the Extract options)

    Arnav, Swapnil doesn't think this is a viable answer. Could you check his reasons? If this isn't a good answer, could you unmark it?

    Thanks!
