Interface not registered Windows XPP

I have a  long time domain member computer that I just took out of service due to an upgrade. I wanted to send it to another group of users, but when I went into computer management to change Local Users and Groups, it will expand properly, but when I try to enter the Administrators group, it returns and error "Interface Not Registered."

I went on to find that nothing in the MMC is accessible beyond the first tree level. For example, I can expand the Event Viewer, but not open individual events..

I reapplied SP3 hoping to freshen the activeds.tlb file that one forum suggests is the problem. The machine still runs well and logs into the domain with the users currently listed and no other applications seem to have problems. I just can't use the MMC.

Try to do:

1. Click Start, and then click Run. The Run dialog box appears.
2. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK:
    Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll
You receive the following message in the RegSvr32 dialog box:
    DllRegisterServer in C:\WINDOWS\System32\ole32.dll succeeded.
3. In the RegSvr32 dialog box, click OK.

Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll

returns a file not found error. I typed (NOT in a CMD window):

Regsvr32.exe\windows\system32\Ole32.dll

on a Win XPP systems.

Am I missing something?

So I opened a cmd window, navigated to c:\ and typed:

regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\Ole32.dll

That worked.

Thanks.
