VE incompatible with IE9
« on: March 16, 2011, 07:48:49 AM »
Vengine64.DLL causes  APP Crash of Windows Explorer.  You cannot open a folder view, Control panel etc.  I had to remove the Comodo Verification Engine Folder containing Vengine64.DLL before windows would operate normally - be warned.


Windows 7 64 bit. CVE version 2.7.0.37

Same problem here. Even disabling VE as suggested by IE9 did not make any difference. Had to uninstall VE which worked for my Windows 7 64 bit system but still did not work for my Windows 32 bit system. I had to use system restore for that one, uninstall VE then reload IE9.

Had to use command line to delete the folder and DLL file before I could open control panel to uninstall.

I would suggest you uninstall Verification Engine with a third party tool like iobituninstaller.

http://www.iobit.com/advanceduninstaller.html


Then use autoruns.exe  and search for and delete all entries containing "vengine".

Hi SivaSuresh,

This is quite an old thread
Several threads were already created here related to the said problem, say :

https://forums.comodo.com/verification-engine-cve/verification-engine-please-help-resolve-some-contradictions-t71775.0.html;msg510872#msg510872

Interesting thing is that 3rd party uninstaller (I tried Revo) may not help. See the subsequent link:

https://forums.comodo.com/general-discussion-off-topic-anything-and-everything/troubles-with-ie9-upgrade-vengine-t71617.0.html;msg509696#msg509696

What I meant - it may happen – just manual uninstall (removing folders and Registry leftovers) may work , but if Iobit Uninstaller suggested will do the job – fine, despite my doubt(s)  ;)

Anyway since the initial poster did not reply since I hope he/she read all the above and solved the problem
Had to use command line to delete the folder and DLL file before I could open control panel to uninstall.
, which is reflecting part of what I was writing in the referred thread about uninstaller's failure and manual cleaning procedure

Cheers!

Hi All
I have found a solution to the error and a fix that worked for me.

Restart your machine, then boot it in safe mode (F8 on my machine just after POST)

** TIP **
Save this to your desktop BEFORE you restart so you have a copy of it to hand, you can also start in Safe mode with network support and bookmark this page.

Press the WIN key + the R key you will get the CMD dialogue box, copy and paste this

regsvr32.exe -u "C:\Program Files\Comodo\VEngine\VEngine.dll"

where the "C:\Program Files\Comodo\VEngine\VEngine.dll" is change to suit your machine, with machines that are 64 bit you are going to need to alter the line as the files exist in both you c:\Program Files AND your C:\Program Files (x86) folders

Here are the lines i used to clear the DLL

regsvr32.exe -u "C:\Program Files (x86)\Comodo\VEngine\VEngineIE32.dll"

regsvr32.exe -u "C:\Program Files\Comodo\VEngine\VEngineIE64.dll"

For each of the lines you should get a success message.

Reboot your machine once complete.

Your machine will work again.

Hope this helps you all.
