I went to install Malwarebytes on my desktop computer but got a weird installation 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 the problem.”
I tried downloading another copy of Malwarebytes and re-installing it, thinking I got a bad file, but I just got the same error. Doing a quick google search led me to the bleepingcomputer.com forum. I guess that error means that visual basic is damaged. How it got damaged is beyond me, but it’s a pretty easy solution. Be sure to uninstall Malwarebytes first. Then all you have to do is download and install service pack 6 for visual basic 6.0. Install Mbam again after that is finished. *Poof*, all fixed.
