You'll be prompted for the Operating System CD or the Service Pack Files location:
If you're using Windows XP, insert the Operating System CD. For OEM systems, point to the Operating System source path when prompted. If you've applied a Service Pack separately, you need to insert the Slipstreamed Operating System CD (if you have one) or point the installer to the ServicePack source path when prompted . Mention the path as "C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386" or "C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles"
If you don't have the Windows installation CD, and if the installation source files are not present in the hard disk, you may click Cancel when you see a dialog . IEFix will continue with DLL registration part.

Thanks for the suggestion, but when I tried to run the IERegFix script, I got a runtime error.
I tried installing IE8. Didn't help.
I tried a complete removal of McAfee apps, clean-up of files (MCPR.exe and manual) then reinstalling from a fresh download. No luck there either. VT finds no errors.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?
I think I missed an opportunity on past visits. I had searched the forum for similar problems, but didn't find anything similar. It's probably just the way I worded the search and my lack of familiarity with McAfee (was running Norton 360 and got tired of my pc crawling everywhere!) I didn't realize that, when you open a thread to read it, there are "Similar Threads" listed at the bottom of that screen. To my surprise, I found a post with a title exactly matching the problem I was having. That thread suggested running IERegfix.bat, which is found here:
I downloaded and ran that file and it fixed the problem in a matter of a few minutes.
I don't know how IERegFix.BAT compares with the IEFix.BAT utility suggested earlier by Vinod. Maybe it would have worked too had I tried running it after I broke down and installed IE8 before my last post. I suppose if anyone is wondering whether IERegfix.BAT works for IE8, you now have one example of a real-life success story with that utility.
Glad you are ok ..
Thanks for posting back with details
For any users having issues with Internet explorer you may try both or one of those tools in an attempt to repair it.. It can't harm the machine... ( they are almost the same happy ...)
