Fixing the Kaspersky Outlook plugin

Periodically the Kaspersky Outlook plugin stars to misbehave, causing a pop-up warning every time a user tries to send an e-mail message. I found a straight forward solution at the following site: http://www.fixkb.com/2010/03/add-in-kaspersky-mail-checker-cannot-be.html

I had to change the suggestion slightly to reflect the Windows 7 path difference from XP.
There is also a typo on his page (there are too many “l”s in his CLI example for .dll).
Also pay attention to the version number in the path.

regsvr32 -u “C:\ Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0\mcou.dll”
regsvr32 “C:\ Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0\mcou.dll”

MMCKaspersky Administration Kit does not Launch.

Every once in a while when I try to launch the Kaspersky Administration Kit interface, I get an error message stating that:
MMC cannot open the file C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Administration Kit\CS Admin kit.msc.

This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file".
The solution is to simply delete the file located in C:\Documents and Settings\AdminUser\Application Data\Microsoft\MMC\CS Admin Kit. Of course replace the AdminUser part with the username you are using. For MS Server 2008, Vista, and Windows 7, that path will be C:\Users\AdminUser\Application Data\Microsoft\MMC\CS Admin Kit.
