JScript not working - About Box Blank

    Hi

    I have a problem that has just appeared.

    It seems that Javasript is not working in IE and also if I look at the About
    box it does not report any version numbers etc.

    I have found a fix that re-registers three DLL's

    REGSVR32 jscript.dll
    REGSVR32 /i MSHTML.DLL
    REGSVR32 MSHTMLED.DLL

    This gets it all working, but after a re-boot or turning off, I have to do
    it all again?

    I have also ran another fix that re-installed IE, but still got the same
    problem.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Andy

    Yep that's the fix I had already found and tried.

    It works for the current session, but if I reboot or next morning when I
    turn on the computer it's back to being blank and I have to do it again.

    This just happened to me. Windows restore - blank. Other dialogs - blank.

    REGSVR32 jscript.dll
    REGSVR32 /i MSHTML.DLL
    REGSVR32 MSHTMLED.DLL

    Fixed it. Spyware scans, nothing. Virus scans, nothing. AFAICT, my system is
    clean. What caused this? Where did it come from, how did it get this way?

  9. What caused this?

    No idea. But I've seen cases where uninstalling Norton products breaks
    JScript registration.

    Aha!!! I removed Norton Internet Security (because it is so freaking lame).
    Symantec has a long history of their uninstall programs breaking things, I
    would not be surprised if that is indeed what caused this.
