  2. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Gee thanks! That really did not answer my question.

    I don't waste my time trying to fix things that are not broken! Do you!

    Good question. I've asked the utility's author, Ramesh, to chime in here,
    Susan. Please await his reply.

  5. Susan,

    IEFix does not run in Internet Explorer 7. If IE7 is installed, it displays a message and exits. Now that they have introduced ieframe.dll, registering the (legacy?) modules such as shdocvw.dll causes some side-effects. Also, the DllRegisterServer entry-point does not exist in some of the DLLs added/modified by IE7. That's the reason I've not updated IEFix.

    Will this work for any Internet Explorer version including the newest
    Internet Explorer 7?
