This is my first time on this forum . . . hope someone here can help.
Internet Explorer recently became unable to open a link in a new window. I tried the solutions offered on this site and Microsoft support site: running "regsrvr32 *.*"
where *.* = urlmondll, shdocvw.dll, msjava.dll, actxprxy.dll, oleaut32.dll, browseui.dll and shell32.dll.
Seemed to work well with all files EXCEPT shell32.dll. RegSvr32 error message reads:
Shell32.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not
DllRegisterServer may not be exported, or a corrupt version of Shell32.dll
may be in memory. Consider using PView to detect and remove it.
I'm not a tecchie, so don't have C++ loaded on this machine.
There is a copy of Shell32.dll located on the hard drive. There must be a backup copy in one of those .cab files.
Can someone please provide some step-by-step instructions for restoring a good copy of shell32.dll so that I can once again open links in a new window when using IE?
