Notes
  • This wizard may be in English only. However, the automatic fix also works for other language versions of Windows.
  • If you are not on the computer that has the problem, save the Fix it solution to a flash drive or a CD and then run it on the computer that has the problem.

Then, go to the "Did this fix the problem?" section.

Let me fix it myself


Re-register the broken interfaces by running the following commands:

regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\System32\actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

On 64-bit Windows, also run the following commands:

regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Internet Explorer\ieproxy.dll"

On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, these commands need to be run from a user account with administrative privileges on the machine.

On Vista or later, these commands need to be run elevated. Click Start, All Programs, Accessories. Right-click Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator. At the command prompt, run the commands.
