I've been getting this error message a whole lot, recently:

"The ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll."

It pops up whenever I start up my PC, open IE, open the Control Panel, download a new program, etc. All I know is that it's related to IE and other internet applications. I have windows Vista on a Toshiba tablet PC.

I've searched online and found no answers. I've tried deleting it and replacing it but I can't. Any help, please?

Try to uninstall it.
In "Programs & Features" it'll be listed in "Installed updates" section.
When you uninstall it, it'll revert itself to IE7.

I tried that and it uninstalled IE completely, so I just reinstalled it. The problem is still there even if I do or don't have IE...

You always have IE, because it's part of Windows.
When you "uninstall" it, it only reverts itself to an earlier version.

Now, an important question...
When you uninstalled IE8 and it reverted itself to IE7, were you still getting that error?

C:\Windows\System32\iertutil.dll file looks fine.
Where did you get this one from: C:\Users\Corgonin\Desktop\iertutil.dll ?

Oh that was one I grabbed from another computer that I tried replacing with the one in the System32 file. I just deleted it and the problem is still there.

No I was not able to because an error message would always pop up, saying "cannot be deleted because this file is in use".

Yeah, you can try to do it from Safe Mode, or if it doesn't work there, you have to use Vista recovery disk and use command prompt to do it.
Try safe mode first.
If it doesn't work, we'll go from there.

None of that worked at all...
