To resolve this behavior, use either of the following methods.

NOTE: Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

Method 1: Deleting and Re-registering the Temporary Internet Files Folder

To delete and re-register the Temporary Internet Files folder, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.
  2. Type the following line
    deltree "c:\windows\Temporary Internet Files"
    where windows is the folder in which you installed Windows. Be sure to include the quotation marks. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, press Y, and then press ENTER.
  3. Type exit, and then press ENTER.
  4. Click Start, and then click Run.
  5. In the Open box, type regsvr32 cachevu.dll, and then click OK.

    This step registers the deleted Temporary Internet Files folder again.

Method 2: Emptying the Internet Explorer History and Cache Folders

To empty the History and cache folders used by Microsoft Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
  1. In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
  2. On the General tab, do the following:

    1. Under History, click Clear History, and then click OK in the dialog box that appears.
    2. Under Temporary Internet files, click Delete Files, and then click OK in the dialog box that appears.
    After you perform this step, check to see whether the issue has been resolved. If it has not been resolved, continue to step 3.
  3. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
  4. In the list of installed programs, click Internet Explorer, and then click Add/Remove.
  5. After you remove Internet Explorer, restart the computer.

    As the computer starts, information about the manufacturer appears, and then the screen clears. When the screen clears, press F8 to access the Startup menu. Use the DOWN-ARROW key to select Command Prompt Only, and then press ENTER.
  6. Type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command.

    NOTE: When you press ENTER after each of the deltree commands, you should be prompted to confirm that you want to delete the folder. If you are not prompted, you may have typed the command incorrectly.

    cd system
    ren mshtml.dll mshtml.old
    ren shdocvw.dll shdocvw.old
