I am not sure when this problem started but here is the scenario.

I have a webserver and it started behaving like it had some weird malware or virus on there. But a few scans quickly proved otherwise. What happens is that any page that has ActiveX never prompts to install ActiveX, even after tweaking the security settings. Another problem I believe may be releated to this is the Add / Remove Programs comes up with this error:
Line: 21
Char: 1
Error: Object doesn't support this property or method
Code: 0
URL: res://appwiz.cpl/default.hta

Continue.... Yes No

Click YES

An unexpected error occurred.

Object doesn't support this property or method
res://appwiz.cpl/default.hta
Line: 21

For this I have tried
regsvr32 appwiz.cpl
and
regsvr32 jscript.dll
with no sucess.

Does anyone have any ideas?

After doing some research I found the problem is Update KB896688. I uninstalled it by going to
%Windir%\$NTUninstallKB896688-IE6SP1-20051004.130236$\Spuninst
It worked after I uninstalled it. But automatic updates reinstalled it and the problems returned. So I had to reuninstall it then disable automatic updates.

So this topic can be closed.
