Runtime error 453

Recommended Posts

I tried to update MB. It seemed to take quite a long time. Then I got the message Runtime Error 453, followed by something about not finding the DLL entry point. I haven't a clue what this means so can anyone enlighten me?Also tell me how to solve it - but in simple terms please!

My OS is Vista, my AV is Avast and my browser is FF.

Many thanks.

Hello and :blink:

Please do the following:

(Perform a clean/fresh install of Malwarebytes)

NOTE: These steps need to be performed on your computer while logged in as an Administrator.....

  • 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
    • 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 setup 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 and we'll explain how to do it.
