IE8 doesn't respond to clicks on links in Yahoo emails

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by CJB, Apr 22, 2010.

    On my new Acer Aspire One 532 netbook I have Win7 and IE8. Whilst IE8
    usuallly loads and browses web pages OK, for some reason it refuses to
    respond to clicks on links embedded in Yahoo emails. I read elsewhere
    that this is due to the installation of IE8 not registering various
    dlls. Apparently some MVPs have written a script to do this. On my
    Qosmio laptop I have XP sp3 and have no problem with IE8 at all.
    Please can someone advise. Thank you. CJB.

    Is it a Win7 64-bit computer?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Tip: The file named ie8-rereg.all.zip contains all three (3) scripts below.

    If you have a Win7 32-bit computer:

    . Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
    taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.cmd & reboot.

    If you have a Win7 64-bit computer:

    . Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
    taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.32on64.cmd to correct the
    problem in IE8 32-bit & reboot.

    . Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
    taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.64on64.cmd to correct the
    problem in IE8 64-bit & reboot.

    Thank you for your response.

    There appears to be two issues:

    1/ Norton or McAfee virus s/w - McAfee was pre-installed - I have
    activated it for the trial of 60-days, but will remove it a.s.a.p. I
    cannot seem to transfer my paid-for licence for Norton on my Qosmio to
    include the Acer, so will go for a free shareware version later.

    2/ IE8 installation not registering various dlls. This also came pre-
    installed. I am somewhat amazed that MS should have gotten something
    so wrong which is surely fundamental, knowing that there are billions
    of users around the world.

    I have looked at the scripts at:

    http://iefaq.info/index.php?sid=1374950&lang=en&action=artikel&cat=42&id=133&artlang=en

    There seems to be 32-bit and 64-bit versions. I am not sure which ones
    to run, how can I tell what Win 7 (Starter) I have - 32 or 64? Ditto
    IE8?

    Many thanks - CJB.

    Reference:

    32-bit and 64-bit Windows: frequently asked questions
    => How can I tell if my computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of
    Windows?
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions

    [You will want to print the following instructions for offline reference.
    You must reboot when instructed to do so!]

    1a. Download the Norton Removal Tool, saving it to your desktop:
    ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

    1b. Download the McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool, saving it to your
    desktop:
    http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

    2. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the taskbar).

    3. Uninstall the McAfee free-trial (and the Norton application, if it's also
    installed) & reboot.

    4. Make certain that the Windows Firewall is now enabled!

    NB: You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else online (e.g.,
    browsing; reading email; chatting) until you've completed Step #XX below.

    5. Right-click on the file you saved in #1a above and select Run as
    Administrator to run the utility. Don't TOUCH your keyboard until the run
    completes, then reboot.

    6. Right-click on the file you saved in #1b above and select Run as
    Administrator to run the utility. Don't TOUCH your keyboard until the run
    completes, then reboot.

    7. Download/install Microsoft Security Essentials (free):
    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/default.aspx

    8. Manually update Microsoft Security Essentials at least once to make sure
    it's working.

    9. Test by right-clicking on a link in an email & selecting the "Open in new
    window" option.

    WOW - OK - many thanks - I'll give this a go at the weekend. It does
    appear to be involved just to make IE8 activate some links on web
    pages. Can't MS issue patch or something, or maybe I should go back to
    IE7. Maybe that would be easier? Chris B.

    Your problems have nothing whatsoever to do with IE8 or Microsoft and
    everything to do with having (had) a McAfee and/or Norton application
    installed at some point in the past. McAfee and Norton applications are
    notorious for not uninstalling (or upgrading) cleanly.

    The "patch" you need is getting rid of all the McAfee and Norton "leftovers"
    and then correcting the issues they've caused (hopefully) with your IE8
    settings.

    PS: You cannot "go back to IE7" in Win7.

    You can make condescending statements, but you can't bother to mention that
    Symantec/Norton has a removal tool you can download and run? Not sure but I
    think McAfee has one too; I don't use them - I took McAfee off with Add or
    Remove and never saw another lick of a problem with it so never had need of
    a tool.

    I am the only user if the Acer netbook - and Win 7 only allows me to
    log in - so I assume that I have Admin. acess too.

    So I closed everything down except Windows Explorer. Found ie8-rereg,
    did right mouse click, clicked on Run As Administrator. Got the

    Your assumption is incorrect: While your User Account may have
    Administrative privileges, you are not running as /the/ Administrator.

    > ERROR: Access is denied.


    I suspect that the above has nothing to do with Administrative privileges
    and that you haven't taken care of everything in my second reply to your
    thread yet
    (http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general/msg/719a865d1cca7d0e)
    and that you may be seeing the effects of a hijackware infection.

    What an immense help would it be when you obtained a good newsreader!

    Now you need to direct all posters to go along your way of doing things,
    while with a proper newsreader you could simply page back through the
    thread and read again what you wrote before.

    It depends on when you got it. In order to monitor what the cmd file is
    doing you could comment out the echo off and delete the /s switches on
    the regsvr32.exe commands. If there is still a reg.exe command trying
    to fix up a problem for shdocvw.dll and that is what you are getting the
    permission problem on you can ignore that for your OS IMO.

    One additional command which should be in the script IMO is:

    regsvr32.exe /n /i ieframe.dll

    Right I've done all the above and cleaned out McAfee entirely. And
    I've installed MS Security Essentials.

    The removal of McAfee also seems to have 'cured' various issues like
    Media Player 12 crashing with a Server Execution error (apparently
    caused by IE8's dlls being incorrectly registered), and the issue with
    the BIOS clock settings continually losing time (or reverting back to
    the default date/time).

    Also I've deleted all the games pre-installed from Oberon and a load
    of other junk.

    And the netbook now flies.

    Many thanks to everyone - Chris B.
