error message trying to repair IE

  [DELETED] 10:39 28 Dec 2003

When I try this I get "error loading setupwbv.dll the specified module could not be found" Alternate fix to repair Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x for Windows XP:
From the Start menu, choose Run.

In the Run window, type rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt" Note: The command is case-sensitive.

Click the OK button.

Click the Repair Internet Explorer option.

Click the Yes button to complete the repair.

Restart the computer when you are prompted and allow the computer to configure Microsoft Internet Explorer.

1) Check this path exists

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE

2) Check this path exists

C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt

3) Find this file


and edit the line above to have the full path

ie c:\windows\system\setupwbv.dll

so it reads

rundll32 c:\windows\system\setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance etc etc

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE (refers to a location that is unavailable)....
C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt (no results found)
setupwbv.dll (no results found)

Thats why it doesn't work then.

Do you have IE6 on a magazine cover disk? If so there a registry setting that you can change to allow to reinstall IE6 instead of repair.

Go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}

Change or create

DWORD // Value Name: IsInstalled

Set Value to 0

then run the setup.

Or tell us what the problem is and maybe we can fix it...

tried those and spysweeper?
any chance it could be bt (as if!!) or the bt voyager 100 modem? I did try a netgear dm602 router,but it was getting very warm and dropping my signal out...
