Malwarebytes will not run

Recommended Posts

Sorry to bring this topic up again, but I am stuck. WinXP, SP3. Install malwarebytes 1.46, seems to go o.k. until I come to run, when get 'Run-time error '339'. Component 'vbalsgrid6.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered . A file is missing or invalid.'

I have malwarebytes running on two other computers with similar settings in the house, both quite satisfactorarily.

A search has suggested things to try, but all to no avail.

1. Uninstall, run MBamClean, reboot, suspend Antivirus, reinstall.

2. Run TDSSKiller, and Sophos Antiroot; no problems.

3. Run SuperAntiSpyware and then Spyware Terminator; no problems.

4. Downloaded and Installed recommended Windows VisualBasic Common Controls. Installed alright, but no help.

5. Tried to register the offending file through MBamFix.bat. vbalsgrid6.ocx refused to register.

The computer seems to be running well apart from this problem. Any help? I see others with the same problem, but it is unclear whether they resolved this issue. Thanks.

Thanks A.S.,

Item 5 (Mbamfix.bat) Error messages (in three bits):

DLLRegisterServer in C:\ProgramFiles\Malwarebytes'Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll succeeded

ditto \ssubtmr6.dll failed. Return Code was:0x80004005.

ditto \vbalsgrid6.ocx failed. Return Code was 0x80004005

Downloaded the vbrun60sp6.exe as suggested, but was then unsure of the folder to de-compress it to. Put it into C:\windows\system32.

Downloded and ran DDS.scr. DDS.txt and attach.txt are now attached.

Thanks again.
