LoadLibrary("softpub.dll") failed
GetLastError returns 0X0000007f

This, I believe, is at the heart of my problem with viewing secure pages in IE, but I can find NO help googling this error.

I'm trying to register this DLL file.

That error means "The specified procedure could not be found," which probably means the version of softpub.dll is too old (or possibly too new) for the application you're running (IE, I guess).

(I'm afraid I don't know anything about softpub.dll.)

IE works great except for HTTPS pages which throw a "page cannot be displayed error."  This all occurred right after installing AVG virus scan software and an uninstall didn't correct the problem.  

I go to start > run and try "regsvr32 softpub.dll" on a different NT machine and it works....on this machine that had the virus scan it gives the error in the first post.  I copied the softpub.dll from the machine where it works to the one where it doesn't and tried again and it still doesn't work.

There might be other DLLs that your DLL needs.  Get Dependency Walker from http://www.dependencywalker.com/ and load your DLL into it.  It will tell you whether there are missing DLLs that it relies on.

I got this error
Error: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in an implicitly dependent module.

Crypt32.dll is redish-pink.  I also get a crypt32.dll error when reinstalling ie6.  I tried copying crypt32.dll from the good system to the bad, but it says it's in use by Windows.

To find out which process is using crypt32.dll, you can use Process Explorer from http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml - it has a Search that will tell you who's using which DLLs.

Got it!  Turned off those processes, replaced the file, rebooted, and everything is peachy.  Thanks.
