    Mc Afee and vb

      I have a problem with vb script.

      When I try to open a vb script file, I receive the follwing message:

      Can't find engine "VBScript" for script...

      I have found in the web that it is a bug provoked by Mc Afee.

      I desesperately need to work with VBScript.

      Microsoft helpdesk sent me to Mc Afee.

      I use Windows 7 Premium.

      Thanks for any help.

          Well they are partially correct but it may not be McAfee's fault.  This usually results from a broken installation of antivirus or an incomplete removal of same and is curable according to this I found doing a Google search for "Can't find engine "VBScript" for script."

          See if that helps.


          Meanwhile did you have a problem with installing/uninstalling McAfee at any stage or have you used a registry cleaner at some stage?

            Hi Britt,


            Many thanks.

            I have used a registry cleaner.

            And instead of C:\Windows\system32\vbscript.dll I found C:\Program files\Common Files\McAfee\SystemCore\Script.SN20130127003210.dll

            Is it the evidence of a problem with McAfee?

            Now I try to fix it.

            3 hours lost on this problem.

            Thanks again for your time. I appreciate.

              Yes had McAfee operated normally that would have been changed back to default on uninstallation.  Introducing registry cleaners into the equation always messes things up in the end and I certainly don't recommend them.


              Do the change that person mentions in that link I posted, or post for help on a Windows forum.

                Hi Britt,


                Yes the changes suggested worked perfectly.

                I am extremely happy because I work daily with this script and I was blocked.

                Your contribution was so helpful.

                Thanks again
