    I script a small 2D online game created with Visual Basic 6.0 and my friend
    is having trouble logging in. We thought we fixed her error but she recieved
    the error 0x80020009 when she tried to register dx7vb.dll. The problem is she
    has played the game before without error and the last time I updated she
    cannot connect without getting that error, as well as she is the only user on
    her computer. Does anyone know how we can fix this?

    You can also do the following to resolve this issue.

    Restore file and registry security permissions to a known state.

    For Windows XP users:

    Download and unzip a small utility called Repair Permissions from
    Locate the unzipped folder, and double-click the !RUNME file.
    The command prompt window will now open and will begin to restore the file and registry permissions to a known state, please be patient as the command can take some time to complete.
    Once the command has completed, try to register a dll file again.

    For Windows Vista/Windows 7 users:

    Click Start>All Programs>Accessories, then right-click on ?Command Prompt? and select ?Run as Administrator?
    Type in the following command exactly as you see it and press ENTER.
    secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose
    Wait for the command to complete, it can take some time so please be patient.
    Once the command has completed, try to register a dll file again.
