    I've put a programme on my computer which I desperately need to use for work purposes. It seems to have installed okay but when I try to run it I get the following error message: component 'vblayout.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

    I've spent hours googling this but all I seem to get are people spamming and telling you to download this that and the other which will sort it.

    Anyone help at all?

    Download malware bytes Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download update it first with the latest patch by clicking update. On completion disconnect it from the internet. Reboot in safemode and run a full scan. It will remove all known malware run it a few times.take it from there.

    Did all that, didn't find anything. I tried the programme in safe mode and it worked fine so I restarted in Windows 7 and it worked! That's two weeks of frustration gone in about 30 minutes. I've no idea how I did it, probably something to do with running it in SM I guess. Anyway, the Malware software will come in handy.
