Just installed Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise 64bit Edition on my new Dell Poweredge T310

SP2 is installed and I have 4GB of memory

Downloaded from my WSUS server a ton of updates which included IE8 and IE8 updates

After a restart of the server now when I try to run ID 8 or IE 8 64 bit I get this error

The original 410 could not be located in the dynamic link library urlmon.dll

If Itry to uninstall IE8 it shows me a long list of updates that are effected by IE 8


Any ideas

"First try to register Urlmon.dll.
1. Log into the computer as an administrator.
2. Click on start and then click on run.
3. Type in cmd and press enter.
4. Type rereg urlmon.dll and press enter."

If that doesn't do it, the post that indicated it helped in the past also references as system file checker (sfc) tool which can be run.

Thanks for the quick responce

I could not find rereg  I did use regsvr32 urlmon.dll from the syswow64 folder
it registered successfully
I then tried IE 8 got same error

I then ran sfc /scannow from same folder syswow64 it finished and reported no errors

I tried IE 8 again but the same error

is rereg a program?

Where to go from here

Thanks

I read that twice when I posted, and I read 'rereg' and intepreted it as regsvr32... as far as I know, there isn't a separate command.

Obviously I can't reproduce the problem here, and I can't find a solution online.  (I assume you already looked too.  The majority consensus would appear to indicate an reformat/reinstall is in order.  :-(  And it sounds like this IS a new install.)  I assume what has happened is either (1) urlmon.dll failed to update with the last patch that included that file or (2) there is more than one copy of your system, and the wrong one is getting loaded.  (I don't like that second explanation however.)

Try performing a search on your windows directory in any file *.log, for "urlmon.dll".  Sort the results by date, and pick the last one or two log files, and see if it indicates a failure...  and depending on the results of that, I'd attempt an uninstall/reboot/reinstall/reboot of that one patch.

It is better to download and reinstall IE 8 rather wasting time on its troubleshooting. On second thought, You can also use firefox or any other browser as well
