DLINK VAPGDecoder active-X causes IE6 to crash

rsinden asked
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
The DLINK DCS 2100+ internet camera (with built-in webserver)requires the download of an Active X control from DLink to view the camera image in IE6. I downloaded this as per normal. However, now when I navigate to the camera, IE dumps itself immediately as soon as the webpage from the camera starts to load. if you don't install the control then IE is stable.

I have removed the control and reloaded it - no cure
I have looked in regedit and can see that this control is in a directory windows/downloaded program files/conflict.2/vapgde..etc but looking in C: directory I can only see downloaded program files/vapgde..etc.  Even in DOS I can't access the ...conflict.2....directory.  So maybe this is a hint as to where the problem lies but I don't know how to resolve it.

It works fine on other computers but not this one.
