Malwarebytes Error Message

Recommended Posts

I have had Malwarebytes on my desktop for almost 3 years now & I've never had problems. Currently, I am sending this post from my fiances laptop. Seldomly, I will preform clean up tasks on this laptop, because he rarely does. Everyday when I log off of my desktop, I run the same two programs: Malwarebytes v1.5 & SUPERAntiSpyware v4.53. They work great, so I figured I would install them on his laptop. I logged onto the laptop to clean it up & proceeded with the following steps: I removed unwanted programs from Add & Remove Programs, ran Disk Cleanup, downloaded & installed Express & Custom updates from Microsoft Updates, then I downloaded & installed SUPERAntiSpyware, recieved all updates, then closed it & lastly downloaded & installed Malwarebytes, recieved all the updates, then closed program & rebooted laptop. The laptop restarted & all seemed fine, until I tried to run the Malwarebytes application. I double clicked on the Malwarebytes icon & I instantly recieved:

Error Message:

mbam.exe - Unable To Locate Component

This application has failed to start because MSVBVM60.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I know that the file in question, is in the correct folder & I don't know where to go from here. Like I said, I have never experienced any problems with Malwarebytes prior to this, so I apologize, but I am unsure how to proceed in getting this program to work. If ANYONE can help, lead me in the right direction torwards resolving this problem, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance for any help given. I will be checking this post every hour on the hour... THX !

I have attatched a screenshot of the laptops error message, to this post.
