Runtime error 399 vbalsgrid6.ocx


Recommended Posts

I cant run Malwarebytes, it instantly comes up with an error message when i try and open it that reads "Runtime error 399, Component vbalsgrid6.ocx is not registered, a file is missing or invalid.

I googled the crap out of this and the best I got was this:

http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=6207

but the thread got locked and no where in it is a solution for me.

I've tried

downloading that microsoft 6 package

downloading and running a cache clearer

downloading rootrepeal which didnt find anything

something else i forget

is there a known solution to this problem? or another anti malware program comparable to this one?

im running vista fwiw

Hi roger39 -

You do not list any other Security , Antivirus and Firewall installed - These can be very relevent -

First try the Un/Reinstall even if you have then we can start from fresh there -

A quote from AdvancedSetup = There is never anything that cannot be fixed - We always can fix it if You wish -

To Fully Remove and Reinstall a Fresh New Copy of Malwarebytes - Read Carefully

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • Click on the Start button and select Control Panel
  • Click on Programs and Features
  • Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Restart your computer very important !
  • Download and run mbam-clean.exe from here

It will ask to restart your computer, please allow it to do so, very important

After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here

Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via email if using the Pro version only

Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.

Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray if using the Pro version. Now reset any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.

You may use the guides posted in the FAQ's here or ask me and I'll explain how to do it.

Thank You - :)

EDIT -

Please post back for next steps -

vbalsgrid6.ocx is a third party component. It is not part of the MS VB6 runtimes.

Hello rodger39,

[...]i'm currently trying to get rid of this 'Malware Doctor' thing[...]

Most likely it is done by the malware. If you can find another computer that can update MBAM, you may copy the database and get the updated copy to the infected one.

ISSUE: I need to get the latest database onto a computer that cannot access the Internet.

SOLUTION: You can manually copy the database from a working computer using a flash drive or CD onto the infected PC. Our database file is stored in the following locations.

  • Windows XP and 2000
  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • Windows Vista and Windows 7:
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

If you wish to have your system checked by an expert heper, you may follow the instructions below -

Thank you for at last disclosing this part of the problem - Windows Defender is not enough for you to be using -

Microsoft Security Essentials linked here is the minimum that you should be using as it is always active and includes a firewall -

Now please follow the instructions left above by gtyhfy so that the experts can fully clear this problem -

This problem has been solved by our experts in other posts - Please follow the instructions above -

Hi,

can I post to a two year old thread?

I too am having the same issue with vbalsgrdi6.ocx. I can see the activex component in c:/Program Files/Malwarebyes' Anti-Malware but something must be missing/corrupted.

Going to perform the above instructions however the link to mbam-clean.exe is no longer valid. Most current clean I could find is mbam-clean-1.60.2.0003. Will that work for Malwarebytes 1.62? Would it be advisable to use RevoUninstaller to remove Malwarebytes? I always thought it did a better job of cleaning the registry.

One last thing. If I end up copying the DB over from another machine (the machine in question is Windows XP & the copied from machine is Windows 7) can I just copy the vbalsgrdi6.ocx file.

One more last thing. I was performing Section I for Common Issues related to MSE & Malwarebytes when this happened. Maybe Revo whacked something?

thanks

Hi & thanks, will start a new thread in the future.

yes I did perform those steps as detailed (with restart & disable MSE) but it did not help. Still getting = run-time error '339': component 'vblasgrid6.ocx' or one of it's dependencies is not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

So I performed a system restore to two days ago (I started this yesterday) & now getting = run-time error '383': 'Text' property is read only

& when I attempt to uninstall =C:\program files\malwarebytets anti-malware\unins000.msg is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program.

I was about to go to the Win 7 machine & obtain a copy of the DB per instructions gtyhfy.

thank you for the assistance

Hi - guess I'm really mucking about here. Since last I posted have tried several things. undid the System restore - that made things worse. Put me back to run-time error '339'.

Have completed the steps from above more than once performing restarts after removal & mbam clean, disabled MSE during install - continue to get '339'.

Copied rules.ref over from Win 7 machine (which is 64 bit in case that matters). Copied 'vbalsgrid6.ocx' over too. Same result. In fact copied all of C:\Program Files\malwarebytes & C:\Program Data\Malwarebytes over with same result.

removed anything & everything that has to do with Malwarebytes, ran CCleaner in case registry was frag'd. reran procedures above.

restored the registry from two weeks ago. reran procedures.

Installed mbam version 1.60. reran

Getting Run-time error '339': component 'vbalsgrid6.ocx' or one of it's dependencies is not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid. - every time. @ least it's persistent.

I am really @ a loss. Ran MSE scan as well as Malicious Software Removal Tool & the Microsoft Safety Scanner too. Didn't really think it was virus related but couldn't hurt to run all the scan anyway.

Currently running an sfc scan. may take a while - older machine.

It was all working beautifully until yesterday when I removed MB to exclude the mbam processes in MSE. Malwarebytes appears to install fine but when I ask it to fire up (have by the way unchecked the boxes for trial version & Update - only box checked is start) get a '339' every time. Have always clicked on activate after the free version has been installed. Three machines running MB Pro, Two 64-bit Win 7 & one 32-bit Win XP Home. Never an issue before.

thanks again
