Hi Stratum…

I have similar issue last week and got resolved following these instructions. Try if possible. Hope this helps you.

Hey Mansi,
thanks for the link. Unfortunately, I already tried it, and, since I uninstalled the extension, there’s no entry in regedit, so there’s nothing to modify or to trace. The specific problem is that it’s not possible to re-install the extension atm.

Thanks tho

Cheers
Stratum
