Receiving a warning from Internet Download Manager on Windows Startup that files required for system and browser integration are missing?, Read why this error is shown and how to fix it. If IDM is showing the error: ‘IDM cannot find 4 file(s) that are necessary for browser and system integration. Please reinstall IDM’– you can get a similar error, but the number of files, application unable to find could be different in your case, but the fix is same, scroll down to read that below.
What could’ve happened?
Crucial files of IDM could have been deleted by Security applications installed on your computer like antivirus. We’ve contacted the IDM support team about this error, they said ” This can happen if some application on your computer blocked or deleted IDM files. It can be some security application like antivirus.”
Exactly this happened to me, the integrated Browser Cleanup tool in Avast on running, suggested me to remove IDM integration (IDMIEHlprObjClass) extension in Internet Explorer (which I don’t use) because of poor reputation, I allowed it to remove it, guess what happened? That above said error welcomed me after the restart of the computer.
Fixing ‘IDM cannot find files that are necessary for browser and system integration ..’
The fix is simple, uninstall and reinstall IDM without looking for the workarounds to avoid that error on startup. If you can’t uninstall IDM, use the tool offered by its company Tonec for it.
