Worried with script errors! Use these simple steps to solve the problem!
Windows script error is usually caused when DLL files get corrupted or missing. This normally happens when a program mishandles the files during use. Windows registry is the root cause of this problem, and it occurs when applications on the computer start looking for DLL files location and because they get unavailable, it starts giving problems.
The host error might look like a virus or a malware to a normal user, but it is not more than a VBScript problem. Windows is not the only OS that is affected by the error. In fact, all operating systems are susceptible to this problem. So, if you are facing an issue, you can try these steps that have helped many users in the past: –
- Scan the system through system file checker
- Open the command prompt by typing “cmd” in Run or you can just type “cmd” in search box in Windows 8 and above. Right click on the run and select “Run as administrator”
- Once you are on the command screen, on the blinking cursor type “sfc /scannow” and press enter.
- After pressing enter, the command will search entire system and look for any corrupted files and will also fix it.
- Use Registry Editor
- Press the Windows and R key together or you can select run from start men.
- In the search box type “regedit”. This will open the registry editor
- You will be directed to a new screen that is divided in two. In the left navigation pane look for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT folder and expand it.
- You would see a .vbs file in the folder, click on it.
- The moment you click the folder, you would see some files displayed on the right side of the screen. Double-click the (Default) key, and set its value to VBSfile
- You can close the editor screen and you should be good to go
- If the above step does not solve the problem, don’t exit the Registry editor
- Instead look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand it.
- Look for software, expand it. Microsoft, Windows NT and then Winlogon.
- On the right-hand side, scroll down till userinit.exe and delete all the files after userinit.exe.
- Close the Registry editor
- Run the registry editor in safe mode.
- Once in registry editor, press CTRL + F together to open “Find”.
- In the search box type “nameofthe.vbs” and press enter or click next.
- Once the search ends, you would be directed to a folder in userinit key. Double click the folder and you would see a number of paths separated by commas. Look for “the vbs file”, and delete the path. Be cautious that you delete on this path and do not delete anything else.
- Press F3 to ensure that the path is not elsewhere in your registry. If you find one, delete it using the instructions above. Keep running it until you don’t find any error.
- Close the registry editor
