Run the following command: regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\shellext.dll"
Yep, it works for me as well.

It has been submitted to MS Connect, so they know about it there as well.

Yes, even with Windows 7 Beta they recommended clean installs.

Gonna wait till the actual release... I don't see any change in GUI. And we don't know how much better the anti-malware protection is.

It's called an analogy.

Just pointing out that CLEAN INSTALLS are always a Microsoft recommendation for their Beta software.

It's the only way to ensure that problems do not carry over from previous installations.

Can't tell you if JonM is right or not (about MS always saying to do a clean install) because I honestly don't know for sure, but the analogy made perfect sense to me. I still haven't done a clean install myself because I have not seen any other problem yet. I'd like to see if another pops up, be aware this is only because I back up EVERYTHING, as do my parents.
