Did you try the Uninstall Utility?  Does it still give you an error?

 

Perhaps we need to try a system restore?

Is the date right on your computer?  MS says lots of things will fail if the date is screwed up.

 

The installer cleanup tool is what I meant:

Try this:

 

Open up regedit and check the following registry key:

HKCR\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32

Within it, there is a registry value called (Default) which should carry a Data value of:

C:\Windows\system32\vbscript.dll

If it says something else, you’ll need to change it to match the above.  This should fix your problem!

This is getting annoying.

 

Copy the next line:

 

reg query "HKCR\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32" > \junk.txt

notepad \junk.txt

 

Then open a command prompt and right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the copied lines should appear.  Hit Enter if notepad does not come up.

 

Copy and paste the text from notepad into a reply.

 

How did you get the screen shot to work?

! REG.EXE VERSION 3.0
 
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32

The computer battery went dead over night so I plugged it in and turned it back on. The desktop icons do not work but was able to open paint by going to start and it was listed on the last programs that ran so it opened when I clicked on it. Also there are no user names listed when you come up from screen saver, you have to restart computer.

Does the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\vbscript.dll exist?  If you put 

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32\vbscript.dll

 

in GrantPerms does it find it or did we break that too?

 

Does it make any difference  bringing up reg edit if you type:

 

regedit.exe

 

or

 

regedt32.exe

We can also try a manual system restore if the files exist.

 

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545

 

part 2 and 3 are essentially doing a manual system restore.  This assumes that the files in C:\System Volume Information are still available.

Appears it is there and correct since reg query found it.  ( I assume you mean: HKCR\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11cf-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}\InprocServer32)

 

 

try the following in a command window:

regsvr32  vbscript.dll

Do you get an error?  If not, try the  installer cleanup tool again.
