Before you do a reinstall try one thing. Try "System File Checker". It checks your protected windows files and repairs them if needed.

Right click the Command Prompt and click "Run as Administrator".
Type in: sfc /scannow

You might need your Windows 7 DVD so it can get the files it needs. The last time I did it I didn't need it. It's supposed to be able to get the files it needs out of the Windows directory.

Here's a better explanation than I can give.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - Windows 7 Forums

This thing has saved my butt a bunch of times.

reinstall windows for a browser? Just install Firefox
Firefox doesn't support Activex
