"HeaderFooter.HeaderFooter.l refers to an invalid ActiveX/COM entry {30c3f6cd-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}"

Verified. Here is the registry section in question:

@="Template Printer class"


The CLSID listed ({30c3f6cd-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}) simply does not exist in the registry. In fact, the only reference to this CLSID in the registry is in this key. Therefore, this is a dead-end reference that is non-functional.

The only other reference to this CLSID on the Internet is in French -- and seems to be reporting the same information.

Since the CLSID is invalid, you may wish to delete it. On the other hand, since it does NOTHING anyway, it may be a moot point...

This key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionSharedDLLs refers to a missing file: C:WINDOWSSYSTEMIEMenu.OCX

Verified. This is because IE6 sp1 deletes the IEMenu.ocx ActiveX control, and it is supposed to remove all references to this control and the "PopupMenu" object type.

Microsoft simply forgot to remove this reference to the deleted ActiveX control. Since it points to a non-existent control, you can delete the "C:WINDOWSSYSTEMIEMenu.OCX" value in that key.


Windows Update seems to want you to put this value into your registry, or it will inappropriately tell you that you need to re-apply the March 7, 2002 Security update:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionInternet Settings

If you don't include the "q313829" in that value, Windows Update thinks you don't have the Update installed. This is erroneous -- as IE6 sp1 includes the March 7, 2002 Update (shell32.dll is updated to version 4.72.3812.600).


SOME users are inappropriately being told they need to re-install the Java VM update from March 4, 2002. This is also erroneous IF your Java VM is updated to version 5.00.3805. You can verify your version of Java VM by opening a Run box and Entering "wjview".

To prevent Windows Update from giving you that erroneous message, you need to modify this registry key to correct the version/build number:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftActive SetupInstalled Components{08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608500}

Simply modify that value to show the 3805 build number.

Please note: Windows Update DOES have a separate NEW update to Java VM that was released yesterday (9 Sept 02). This one DOES need to be installed, but Windows Update may tell you to upgrade to version 5.00.3805 first!
