Of late I have been having a rather bothersome, reoccuring problem.

When I try to install software I am getting an error message reading "Unable to register the dll/ocx". This error has occured when installing SpywareBlaster and MS antispyware (just to name a couple)

Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Are you using the most up to date version of Internet Explorer?

Actually, I was trying to get rid of Internet Explorer all together. A task I am begining to this is impossible. Apart from uninstalling Internet Explorer with the add/remove programs, I have not done anything out of the ordinary to accomplish this removal

I am using Firefox currently

I realized I never really answered your question

As far as I know the version that I failed to successfully remove is the most up-to-date version.

You cannot uninstall IE through add/remove, just updates.
I know you want to get "rid" of it, but why not just not use it.

You need IE for manul windows updates, plus if you remove IE improperly (and it ain't easy), you can really crap up your system

If I were you, I would reinstall IE and all updates, and see if the problem persists.
