Malewarebytes Anti-Malware Error 453 Cant find DLL entry

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I have Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware solution. As usual, I thought that I should have its latest version update, which is at 6/1/2011. This is where the problem set in. I started receiving an error code (lease see below). And I tried to fix this with a troubleshot when I received another message, “Can't Find DLL Entry Point, GetConfigParameter in mbamnet."

My computer is Dell Studio XPS running on Windows 7. I tried doing all this carefully. Can somebody help me on this?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi there James F Gilley,

The error you're getting means that some of the files are corrupted. This could happen due to the update that didn't go well or unexpected shutdown.
However, you will need to reinstall the software to get rid of the error. The clean install is always the best way when talking about the security software, so here are the steps to follow for a clean reinstall:
This small piece of software is used to remove the Malwarebytes software from your computer completely, including the registry keys so you can install it again.
After the download is complete, run the .exe file. It will ask you to restart your computer – you have to confirm that as the uninstall process cannot complete without that step.
Once your computer is up again, disable your antivirus. You will have to install the Malwarebytes again, with your antivirus disabled. You can find it at the following link:
You will need to reenter the license, you should have that in your registration email.
When your software is up and running, go to the Update to see if there are any updates left to be installed.

Restart your computer again, enable back your antivirus software and everything should be normal again.
Best regards,
