    Below copied from support thread for BG - follow it to the T and it should do the trick....good luck!


    Follow these steps first and see if the program will work:

    1. Turn off your firewall.

    2. Delete your Internet Explorer cookies (even if you use Firefox, still do this!)

    3. Open up Internet Explorer (NOT Firefox) and go to http://hxxp://www.*blogger.c0m/language.g, make sure the language is in English, not UK English. Do not delete your Internet Explorer cookies after doing this. Delete them before this step!

    4. Download http://hxxp://www.*micr0soft.cOm/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7b9ba261-7a9c-43e7-9117-f673077ffb3c&displaylang=en When you run the file, it will ask you where to extract the files, just choose your desktop or wherever you want. It will extract another .exe file that you will have to double-click "vbrun60sp6.exe", which will automatically install the required files.

    5. Copy the msinet.ocx from the application folder and paste it into the C:windowssystem32 folder.

    Then go to Start > Run, and type:

    regsvr32 C:windowssystem32msinet.ocx

    and hit Enter.

    You should receive a succeeded message.

    If you get an error for any other OCX file, do the same to it as you did the above, just replace the OCX file name. Example, msinet.ocx becomes mswinsck.ocx

    6. If you are using Vista, you might have to do this:

    Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > right-click Command Prompt > click Run as Administrator

    Then use regsvr32 to register whatever OCX...

    7. If you get any type of "automation error" when the program is loading, install this file:


    8. Restart your computer.

    9. Open up the program and see if it works now. If it is freezing on "Creating blog..." and then requesting a new CAPTCHA repeatedly, then put some random text into the "Domain" textbox or load a keyword list under "Keyword Domains" and retry.

    10. Make sure that your time and date are current on your computer.
