Run time error '429'

I'm trying to run Kelly's Korner TaskbarRepairTool (http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/taskbarplus!.htm) to fix a jammed taskbar, something that I've used it before on other computers sucessfully.

I keep on getting a "Run-time error '429'
                                   ActiveX component can't create object" when trying to run the program.

I've tried installing Visual Basic 6.0 SP4 Run-Time Files from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q235420/. I've reinstalled all .Net, run a spyware scan, and run sfc /scannow as well. No cigar. :-(

I have two objectives:
- Fix this arcane error and use the program to fix the jammed taskbar, or
- Fix the taskbar and let the error message live happily ever after.

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, open Dial-a-fix (http://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Dial-a-fix#Mirrors.2Fdownload_locations.2C_and_articles), click all checkboxes under the "Registration center" section and click "GO".

What does Dial-a-fix do? And what's with the Registration center?

By the way, your first link worked, so I'm going to give you the solution points.

Thanks!
