When I go to run HiJackThis.exe, I get a unable to locate component error that says: "This application has failed to start because MSVBVM60.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I believe this might have been removed from my system32 folder either with avast! or I (stupidly) manually tried to rid my computer of a Vundo trojan. I have also tried to use programs such as VundoFix and get a similar message, so I'm beginning to think I did something very dumb. Can anyone help or give me advice?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

this reminds me of a song from my younger days

Careful with that axe Eugene

there are a lot of very critical windows files that are a lot harder to replace than the visual basic script ones
