Forget trying to figure out how to fix that one currupted file. Just upgrade to IE 5.5:
What this will do is download a setup program... so select to "run program from location". Then, during the setup program, just choose the installation items you want, and install... sit back and wait, it will take a little while on a modem.
That should fix the IE problem, and it will update your Internet Explorer too.

I still recommend upgrading to IE 5.5, but if you want to replace the DLL, here is how to do it:
First, download the updated DLL file:
Second, you need to Uninstall the old dll. Open a Dos window (start/run, type in "command" without quotes and hit enter.)
This should bring you to a command prompt with it saying "C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP>" Type the following lines, pressing enter after each one:
regsvr32.exe -u scrrun.dll
rename scrrun.dll scrrun.bak
Ok, that is the end of the commands for that. You have now unregistered the old dll, and saved it as a backup file. Now you need to register the new DLL.
Copy the new DLL file from the folder you saved it in to your Windows\System Folder. Confused? Ok, first, open the folder where you have saved the file you downloaded. Now, double-click My Computer, C drive, Windows folder, System folder. Now, drag the new dll from the saved location into the system folder.
Alright, now that the new file is in place, it is time to register it. Once again, open a command prompt window. (start/run, type in "command" without quotes and hit enter.) Type the following lines pressing enter after each one:
That is it... it should now be registered... you may have to restart before it reflects the change, that I am not sure of. So you may want to restart the computer before trying to start IE just to make sure.
Hope that solves it,
