Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had any insight into this error or had run across it:

Visual Basic 6 HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432node\Microsoft\Visual Basic\6.0 exists HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\VB6\KB926857 Installed is missing. %windir%\SysWOW64\msmask32.ocx version is  6.0.84.18 .

The odd thing here is that none of my assets that report this error have visual basic or any of the applications listed here:
Affected Products:
Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 (Runtime Extended Files)
Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002 
Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 
Microsoft Visual FoxPro 8.0 
Microsoft Visual FoxPro 9.0 
Microsoft Office FrontPage 2002 
Microsoft Office Project 2003 
Microsoft Office Project 2007

I can't disable active X and I've found nothing that would explain how to fix this without the apps installed. I'm guessing it was maybe at one time. Thanks in advance.
