Do you have to have internet access? Because I do not, if not what other options are there?
There is a microsoft hot fix for this.

This is the address.

Click on the download hot fix link at the top of the article. It will email it to you. Copy the password at the bottom of the email.

Click on the link in the email, choose to run the program and paste the password in the box when it pops up.

Then download into your windows folder.
