    I have been having problems the past couple of days and things keep getting worse. I went to use Windows Explorer Search and all that came up was the puppy. I tried some of the popular items of re-registering and keep getting DllRegisterServer in jscript.dll failed Return code was: 0x8000400. Tried reloading Script 5.6, similar error OCX C:\win..\sys..32\jscript.dll. Along the way I was propmted to upgrade to IE8, but have rolled back. So now Search and User Group come up blank(lost a user along the way on the startup splash) and any sites that need Java wit IE7 come up in error. Tried the tips from http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/617205-solved-trouble-registering-jscript-dll.html, same problem with SWEG flashing and though I was able to get permission for Jscript using secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose, I get "Error opening key" for CLSID and OLEScript. User devil_himself seemed to have some good suggestions but just can't get it fixed. OBTW, Firefox works, in fact if I didn't have that I would not have been able to register for the forum (no image verification displayed in IE). Also I am using ESET NOD32, disabling didn't seem to help.
    Thanks

    Java doesn't work, either? The jscript.dll file has to do with javascript so it has nothing at all to do with Java. If both are not working, you may be infected unless they have been disabled by your anti-malware applications.

    Test them here:

    Ran test, Java works but not jscript. Checked Tools, Options, Security, Custom Scripting, all are enabled. Also needed to use Firefox to login to this forum, IE just sits there waiting for redirect and clicking "if no redirect" brings me back to login screen.
