ComCtl32.ocx error with VB6 application


I have a vb6 application which uses ComCtl32.ocx, when I run this application in a normal user previlages in Windows 7, there is no issues, But I am getting following error when I tried to run as administrator.

"Component 'Comctl32.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid 339"

The user I've logged in as is having admin previleges. Any clues on how to resolve this issue.
