    it could be useful but it would have to be repeated for each known corrupted entry. Here's an example of how to use it for each individual DLL:
    No need to repeat.

    Since We don't know which DLL was not registered. The script I showed in step 2 above will register/re-register All DLL's in C:\Windows\System32. Just open the elevated command prompt and copy & paste the line in BOLD then hit <ENTER> as shown in screen shot below. It will loop thru for all the DLL's

    Hey friend,

    I never would have figured out that command line structure and never saw anything like it either. I saw that tutorial while browsing the internet and I didn't quite understand it either (same as OP); however, I'm guessing even that won't fix all the OPs issues but I could be wrong. Anyway, great find and great followup. Cheers!

    Update: But it almost makes sense now per your demonstration.

    FYI.
    for %a in (c:\Windows\System32\*.dll) =====> get the list of all DLL's under C:\Windows\System32

    do regsvr32.exe /s "%a"
    =======> Silently (display no message) run regsvr32.exe for each of the DLL.

    EDIT: You can try it yourself. It will not hurt anything and I believe it should fix his problem.

    Thank you for the offer; however, I think I'll pass and just trust in you that it will work if I ever need it. The reason I don't think it will fix all the OPs issues is because I believe there has been some heavy-duty registry cleaning at work here and the primary suspect is always CCleaner until stated otherwise. Now, if I am correct in my assumptions, I believe there will be far more damage than this can repair; however, since the OP has never specifically identified the use of any registry cleaners, I cannot be sure but I'd be willing to bet one of my last two cents to bargain that he did. Hmm... that might be risky either way because I would have to change my user name to either myonecent or mythreecents....

    Would indexing the contents of C drive help any ?

    So that command basically registers ALL dll files in system32?

    You might try comparing the registry entry for the control panel with another system

    "{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}" is the control panel CLSID.

    I don't know if mine is typical, probably, here it is:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}]
