Missing "Modify Shared Web Part" on WSS 3.0 Edit Page

Had another strange SharedPoint issue when trying to edit the front page of our how to get a abortion WSS 3.0 SharePoint Web Site.

Clicked Site Actions

Clicked Edit Page

Clicked Edit dropdown on the Web Part I wanted to change

Hmmm - where did "Modify Shared does abortion hurt Web Part" go?

Checked permissions - yep had sufficient rights. So what could it be?

I was using IE9, and noticed before it does some weird things so put it into Compatibility mode - and bingo working again!

SharePoint JavaScript issues

A custom bit of code using JavaScript wasn't firing within WSS 3.0 (SharePoint) but only a handful of internal users.  TDD When looking at their computer I notice a script error in abortion places IE:-

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; InfoPath.3)

Message: Library not registered.

Line: 1946
Char: 4
Code: 0

It seems that when Outlook 2003 was uninstalled and Outlook 2010 was installed a dll gets unregistered and not re-registerd again.  The file is called name.dll.

So to Fix:-

In CMD navigate to:-
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

And run the following command:-
Regsvr32 name.dll

Then close all IE windows and try it again and all should be good.
