After Google’ing some more I came across a post of someone who suffered the same issues and he had just uninstalled McAfee SiteAdvisor. I realized that I had just uninstalled (somewhat improperly) McAfee anti-virus and McAfee Firewall and that this must be the cause.
The problem seems to be caused by some ScriptSn* libraries. To fix this, you have to unregister these libraries by running the following commands in an elevated prompt (Run as Administrator)
regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\SystemCore\ScriptSn.20161019232944.dll" regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\SystemCore\ScriptSn.20161020011020.dll" regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\SystemCore\ScriptSn.20161020011140.dll"
If you’re uninstallation of McAfee went wrong then this script might help you. There are four locations with DLL’s to unregister
- C:\Program Files\McAfee
- C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee
- C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\McAfee
Run the following batch script as an elevated user for each of the abovementioned folder. Be sure that the exact folder exists, if not it will unregister all DLLs in the current folder (usually c:\windows\system32)
<pre><code>@echo off pushd "PASTE FOLDER PATH HERE AND DELETE THE EXIT ON THE NEXT LINE" exit for /r %%a in (*.dll) do ( regsvr32 /u /s %aa Echo Unregistering %%a . . . ) popd Echo. Pause | Echo Unregistration Complete: Program will now Exit </code></pre>
