Error when starting to profile an ASP.NET application

When I click "start profiling", the IIS services get restarted, but then I get the following error (which also appears in the event log):

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ANTS Profiler
Event Category: None
Event ID: 0
Date: 25/01/2008
Time: 3:20:59 PM
User: N/A
Unable to start profiler - exception details System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070003.
at _2..ctor()
at _49._8()
at _49._1()
at _5._4(IAsyncResult )

Any idea?

    Yes -- if you search your registry, you'll find that this is related to Internet Explorer. You can try Regsvr32 shdocvw.dll, but this may not work. You may end up reinstalling IE.

    All that ANTS Profler wants from Internet Explorer is to be able to hook into the onQuit event, but IE component corruption is very common, as you'll see elsewhere in this forum.
