Search companion has gone blank!

We got some problems on our development server last week including that the Search Companion in Windows Explorer was completely blank, if you right clicked on RAR or ZIP-files the context menu didn't show up, web pages with AJAX post-backs didn't work e.t.c.

The solution to this was found after several hours of searching and was the following:


cd %systemroot%/system32

regsvr32 wshom.ocx

regsvr32 jscript.dll

regsvr32 urlmon.dll


Even though I installed the latest version of Windows Script 5.7 it didn't correctly register theses files.
