    ActiveX errors – bad install of IE

    Locked

    Hi Folks,

    WinNT 4, IE6

    A customer is receiving the error:
    “ActiveX components in this page may make this page display incorrectly” on any page with ActiveX and Flash elements.

    -ActiveX settings are default for Internet and Intranet.
    -Internet Explorer was repaired through Add/Remove Programs, but during the repair the following errors occured:

    An error had occured while setting up “C:\winnt\system32\asctrls.ocx.” This error has been logged, the installation will continue.

    An error had occured while setting up “C:\winnt\system32\dxtrans.dll.” This error has been logged, the installation will continue.

    I uninstalled all IE patches, rolled the PC back from IE6 to IE5.5, rebooted, installed IE6, but during the install I received the same two errors as above.

    I cannot see any conspicuous apps on the PC.

    The ActiveX error remains.

    What can I do? Your help is appreciated.

      You can attempt to register the dll by hand. Go to Run and type in “regsvr32 dxtrans.dll” (without the quotes) If its successful then you should try reinstalling IE then.

      If it fails then the files may be corrupt, locate both files and rename them to .old or something similar and try reinstalling IE then.

        When I tried this, I received the error:
        RegSvr32
        DllRegisterServer in dxtrans.dll failed.
        Return code was: 0x80004002

        I copied good copies of the files from my PC and tried the same, and received the same error.
