ActiveX problem solved
Posted on 2012-04-04
This is just for info of a solved problem.
A few weeks ago I suddenly faced a problem on Win7 with two IE9 pages with ActiveX, i.e. they stopped to work, after months/years ...
After some thinkings/investigations I came to the conclusion, that it shall have something to do with a newly purchased cleaning program and the full scan and "fix all" done with it ...
The key for this was, that it "fixed all" cleaning also the C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files containing the ActiveX modules, excluding some open .dll's.
So, the solution to prevent this problem is, that after a full scan, before fix all, go to the fix details and untick the Downloaded Program Files item!
OK, one more note ... Once I faced also, that the ActiveX's didn't even to react to ask for to install, and then after investigation, e.g. checking all the IE9 settings, I noted, that the whole DPF folder was totally missing, but then just after self adding it there the ActiveX's begun to install properly, how simple and stupid after a hard troubleshooting ...
