I have an XP Home SP3 computer with Pagebreeze (a web editor) installed. It has worked well but recently it fails to start with the message "Failed to load control 'WebBrowser' from SHDOCWV.DLL. Your version of SHDOCWV.DLL may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application".

I have deleted the application and re-installed it from scratch.
I have renamed the DLL but it another copy is made. There are dozens of copies on my PC.
I have installed RegistryBooster, which claims to cure this problem.
None of the actions made any difference.

I have noticed that since this problem started most new applications that I try to install produce at least one failure message and some applications fail to install altogether. I am not sure if this symptom is related to the SHDOCWV problem.

Can anyone help, please?

Run sfc /scannow

Don't download things that promise to fix any given problem, especially "Registry Boosters" or "Fixers".
