HOTFIX: The "Size (bytes) field displays the file size as Damaged when you view the file properties for an ActiveX control in IE7

July 27th 2007 in Uncategorized

Consider the following scenario. You download an ActiveX control. You view the file properties for the control in the Downloaded Program Files folder. You click the Dependency tab in the Properties dialog box. In this scenario, the Size (bytes) field may not display the file size in bytes. Instead, the Size (bytes) field displays the file size as Damaged. This problem occurs if Windows Internet Explorer 7 is installed on the computer.

Note By default, the downloaded ActiveX controls are stored in the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder when you install the control.

To fix ‘Downloaded Program Files’ dependency “damaged” problem after installing Internet Explorer 7 and all updates on XP (including SP3) – replace occache.dll in system32 folder with version (6.0.2900.5512)
n.b
1. Search for this file on your computer.
2. When you try to overwrite the file, it will give an error because it is locked (in use) by explorer.exe. Unlock using Unlocker (http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/) and register the dll afterwards – (Start > Run and type “REGSVR32 c:\windows\system32\occache.dll)
3. Reboot computer.

A trackback on my site pointed me to www.eq2flames.com/general-gameplay/8990-seeking-ideas-make-people-less-upset-about-ads-20.html Now, ever since this blog (and many others) became the target of sustained attempts to seed the blog with comments pointing to URLs that attempt to infect systems with winfixer malware, I check trackbacks and comments and delete those that are a risk to visitors.  […]
