Internet explorer can't print, find or do pop-ups!
Recently, I also realized I couldn't print from Outlook an email that was in HTML either. While I had search google a hundred times before - this time I found an answer. Here is what I did to fix the problem. From a command line, enter the following commands:
I'm not sure which one was the actual problem - but this reregistered many of the DLLs that IE uses. Now the problems are gone!
This is when I think to myself that MS still doesn't get it when they think they have much better total cost of ownership than Linux. I wasted many tens of hours on this problem. I'm also rather tech savy and so is our IT department!
Why couldn't IE self heal? It should know what DLLs it needs. I really doubt that MS is including problems like this when it does a study indicating it has lower cost of ownership than other OSs. This problem raised the cost for me substantially.
