Dell Current System Configuration Page Not Working, SysProWMI Class IE Addon Issue

In attempting to get the current system configuration, via the Dell website, for my Dell D420 laptop I continued to run into issues. I originally thought that it must be an Internet Explorer cache problem, then went on to believe that it was a Internet Explorer add-on issue, then I thought it might be IE security settings, and the end result was I was able to get it working but I am not 100% sure as to what the problem was.

The error was the fact that no matter what I tried, which I will go into detail about below, I could not get the “Current System Configuration” on to analyze my system consistently. I did finally stumble across a URL that works every single time without even having to be logged in and it is listed directly below.
