    Hi,

    Hi, Some articles I click on from my.yahoo result if the following error message:

    Internet Explorer Security Warning, "Windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher

    name ocget.dll
    publisher unknown

    clicking on OK I get to see the story. Previously I did not get this error message.

    I found from MS: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323207

    which state the resolution is:

    RESOLUTION
    Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

    Change the following registry key so that it does not query ocget.dll:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\CodeBaseSearchPath

    You can complete this manually through Registry Editor, or through the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK). At stage 5 (the Policies and Restrictions section) in the IEAK, you can modify the Code Download option under Corporate Settings to your requirements.

    How should this key be changed so it does not query ocget.dll

    In my Registry I find the following:

    Hklm > software > microsoft > windows > current version > Internet settings

    on the right side of the screen:

    codesearchpath

    codebase;<http://activex.microsoft.com/objects/ocget.dll>;<http://codecs.microsoft.com/isapi/ocget.dll>

    How should this line look to satisfy the resolution?

    Thanks

    Hi Rico

    In the right hand pane, double click CodeBaseSearchPath. Then delete the Value data so you are left with a blank. Click OK, then close the registry editor.

    Hi SpikeyB, It took alot of courage & now I'm strutting my stuff. I went to hklm>softwar>microsoft>windows>current version>internet settings>codesearchpath &

    deleted: codbase;<http://activex.microsoft.com/objects/ocget.dll>;<http://codecs.microsoft.com/isapi/ocget.dll>

    I would not walk a tight rope without a net, so I backed-up the registry & made a system restore point. My problems from the first post (this thread) are history.

    Thanks,
    rico
