WGAPluginInstall places two files on your system. To verify your installation do the following;
- Right-click the Start button, and then click Explore to open Windows Explorer.
- Open the folder where you installed the Firefox Browser. The default location is C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox.
- In the plugins subfolder, verify the presence of the npLegitCheckPlugin.dll file.
- In the components subfolder, verify the presence of the nsILegitCheckPlugin.xpt file.
If you are missing any of these files, try running the WGAPluginInstall again to install the plug-ins.
I would like to be able to tell you that I have installed the plugins and they are working fine on my PC, but my ISP is throwing a bit of a wobbly tonight and I can't get to any Microsoft sites... Google was off limits too until about 5 minutes ago.
