CorelDraw Installation Problem / ActiveX Error when opening Microsoft Management Console ( services.msc )

CoreDraw Installation Problem: When installing CorelDraw, buttons to press "next" or "cancel" may be shown without any text on them and therefore installation setup could not be carried out.

ActiveX Error: When you open Microsoft Management Console (by start > run > type "services.msc" ) you might get an ActiveX error message and some content could not be displayed.

REASON: Adobe Flash Player corrupted update.


NOTE: Before doing any changes with windows registry, backup the registry first.

To resolve this problem

go to start> run > type "regedit" (without quotes)> this opens the registry editor> navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\

(The zones are integer numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4...  but for errorneous computers there is a parasite zone that is just above 0 and looks like an "L"... )

right click on that parasite "L" zone and delete it.

now go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\

it could contain a same zone, if there is a similar zone delete that too.

Exit registry editor and restart computer...

ActiveX error should now be gone. comments
