IE 8 Ordinal not Found

Posted on 2009-12-18

I have a computer that was having issues with IE 8 so we uninstalled and the error went away, however we run automatic updates and it constantly reinstalls.  After it reinstalls, we get the following error:

Ordinal not found
The ordinal 410 could not be located in the dynamic link library urlmon.dll

Does anyone have any idea as to how to fix this so we can run IE 8?

    Ok, I did a regsrv32 urlmon.dll and that seemed to help, I also updated.  I am past the ordinal error now.  
    However the new problem that exists is that now I can open IE 8, however the first page (not including the homepage) that I navigate to throws an error.  When I click don't send it reloads the page and does it again.  

    I have reinstalled this beast like 10 times.  Should i now just run a repair on the computer?

    Are you sure that you're not having any spyware/malware/virus issues?
    What protection are you using?
    When this IE8 issues started happening?
    Have you changed anything since?

    A repair could help.
    Did you try installing IE8 standalone installer in safe mode?

    Nimatejic: Yes, I am very sure it is not virus/malware/spyware related.  We run Symantec Corporate and McAfee here.  Also, I have run Malwarebytes on the machine, as well as SuperAntiSpyware and I have not found anything.

    This happened recently as we have just upgraded the machine to IE 8.  
    Yes, IE 8 instead of 7.

    No we haven't tried that, nor have we tried the repair.  I will give that a shot and will report back.

    This ended up being do to Sonic DLA.  I removed that file and everything seemed to start working again.
