Unable to create instance of required object
I have searched high and low for a solution to this problem. I am running Windows 7. This error pops up in a window titled "fatal error" - "Unable to create an instance of required object". It happens in Firefox (14.0.1) and Word (Office 2010) usually when I'm trying to save or download a file. It then crashes the program and sometimes my entire computer.

I've found tons of old references to problems relating to Allaire Homesite, but the page that windows support sends you to a Macromedia page that no longer exists as they were purchased by Adobe. At one point in the last year, I had started to install Homesite 5 but wasn't successful as I could not find my serial number. But that was long ago and this error just started happening now.

I did search the forums here but found only one post that was never resolved or replied to.

SO grateful to anyone who might shed light on this problem.

I could see two types of messages being mentioned - one with "ServerAdmin" and another "FileProxy".
Which one are you getting ?
For FileProxy - MS-Knowledge base says there is a fix in Homesite's Readme file. But it appears these errors are associated with Homsite/Coldfusion. And this page, mentions unregistering some CF DLLs, did you try that ?

Please check the Event Viewer for any clues.

I have tried the things you found. I'm so puzzled that I can't find the answer to this one!
