I've found the above file but cannot remove it. the "Properties box includes the link:- click here Which results in an immediate file download with no explanation I've rejected it since I don't know what it is. How can I delete this file?
The ActiveX components IE uses will be in this location C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files all you should need to do is to right click them and choose properties to check for the damaged ones, then once found right click and choose remove.
Hi David, I must be improving my Googleing skills! I found that too. lol The only problem is right at the bottom, the guy says: - "The ActiveX components IE uses will be in this location C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files all you should need to do is to right click them and choose properties to check for the damaged ones, then once found right click and choose remove."
Yeah, you can right click, but the only option you get is "Properties", no option to delete.
northumbria61, I only came across this "Damaged" file whilst looking for something else, I haven't had anything misbehaving in IE8, though since finding this, I have noticed that on youtube, the volume control doesn't work properly...but only those videos that have the "horizontal volume control. I don't know if this damaged activeX file is the cause.
Thanks David, I abandoned "Reader" years ago and un-installed it but "Trusteer Rapport" security software given by my bank keeps telling me that "Adobe Reader" is out of date and represents a security risk! Maybe this file is the cause.
Still don't understand why the "new style" volume control in youtube doesn't work properly, I had hoped this ActiveX control was the cause of that, but probably not!
Hiwatt, the screen shots above were taken at the location you describe but I can't delete, remove or otherwise eradicate the little pest! You had me foxed when you mentioned "Toolbar Crop" lol Having googled it, your typo was revealed "Toolbar Cop", I think I'll give that a try, thanks.
