I've encountered on my and some other computers this error:

c:\program files\malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll Unable to register the dll/ocx: RegSvr32 failed with exit code 0x5

during the installation. That means that right-click scanning is not available. I found a solution to a problem.

Please try opening run, and then typing:

regsvr32  atl.dll

After, that, go to
C:\Program files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\
and copy mbamext.dll to
C:\Windows\system32

Then open run again and type:

regsvr32  mbamext.dll

That worked for my and other computers. I hope it works for you!

I'm reasonably certain I've found the solution to fixing this. Not certain what causes the issue though in the first place.

It's very late here right now and I still need to write up some documentation and do a little more testing but will try to post the fix some time this weekend.

You are kind of right cuz my right click scan really wasn't working. But the solution didnt work for me tho. Ppl are getting closer and closer to solving this error once and for all, but this was the closest ive seen so far. Thanx Man
