Cannot enter info in IE 7

Recently, I heard a few people complaining that they are not able to enter information in the forms on IE 7.  I did a search and found some of the DLLs might suddenly be missing from the registry.  The fix is as follow:

To resolve this issue, re-register the DLL files that are related to Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run
  2. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll in the Open box, and then click OK.
  3. Click OK when you receive the following message:
    DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded
  4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the rest of the DLL files by replacing the regsvr32 urlmon.dll command in the Open box with the following commands:
    • regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
    • regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
    • regsvr32 mshtml.dll
    • regsvr32 browseui.dll
    • regsvr32 jscript.dll
    • regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    • regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
The information is found on this page.

I was led to the solution above from another page.
