overwriting shared dlls is so wrong

Grrr.

My install of IE6 began misbehaving shortly after I installed a couple of fairly common utility apps (I’m not sure which is the culprit so will not refer to them by name). Among other things I was being presented with Incompatible version of RPC stub errors when trying to open the find dialogue. Pretty much the only time I browse with IE these days is when reading docs on MSDN so “find in page” is a pretty important feature for me. Anyhow, a quick google turned up this MS Knowledge Base entry which seems to have resolved things:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;321915

So, obviously I’m a little grouchy today – it wasn’t that big a deal to fix – but I really don’t think it’s all that cool to overwrite files required by other software just ’cause some silly feature in your help depends upon a different version.
