Windows 7: IE10 removed for IE8 -- but addons/cab no longer work

IE10 removed for IE8 -- but addons/cab no longer work

This may be more appropriate in a specifc IE forum. If you folks know of one please refer me.

A user using a Classic ASP app & IE10 was working fine. I was surprised because I'd not seen any
IE10 installation and this app work well together. Today it finally became symptomatic.

The symptom was that Crystal Report 9 ActiveX report view windows would not "stick". You'd see the window initialising and then close.

So, Remove IE10 (via CP->Windows Updates-> Uninstall IE 10)
There's usually some resetting of privacy and security settings. Those were confirmed
Reversion to IE8 done. But now:

There are two issues with the ASP and IE10
1) some scripts load But IE8 is now not able to load it.

2)Crystal Reports ActiveX viewer. The "UAC/Allow program to make changes" challenge appears but not the "Install this activex control/Always trust content from this provider" dialogue. After the IE10 removal it was possible to allow the ActiveX each time requested and get a report. After a few times that stopped working completely and now no report appears in the window with the traditional red "X" in the upper left corner.

For the Comdlg32: can anyone confirm that the IE10 removal left droppings of comdlg32 that are _newer_ and thus not compatible with IE8? If so, where/what would they be and how to remedy? I've got copies of the old/original -- but a search of the sick machine can find no instances of these.

For the CrystalReports: Does anyone have any info on why the activex would load a few times and then stop working as well as not "stick" the first time as a permanent add-on? I presume there's some flag somewhere that's decided the add-on is persona non-grata or that its already loaded -- but it doesn't show in Manage add-ons either enabled or disabled. In fact it seems all the previous add-ons that showed under IE10 are now gone with just a 4or5 enabled and maybe 15 more disabled.

I hope I was clear (enough!) thanks
