Search for the MSVBVM60.DLL file using the find file command from the start button. After you have found all examples of the file right click on each one looking at their dates & sizes. Choose the original MS file. TIP The date will be the same as your operating system file dates.

Delete all instances of this file with the exception of the one you wish to keep. Then copy it to the windows/system folder and the other locations as shown in the paths of the Find Files Command.

Hope this helps?

msvbvm60.dll is a Visual Basic file. When you say 'deleted' do you mean removing using add/remove program in settings / control panel?
Did you get any messages re shared files when removing cybertwaek ?

yes deleted using add/remove,i did get a message but thats where my inexperience in computers shows as i didnt think it would relate to other programes

i searched for the file MSVBVM60.DLL and its not there,when i rescan using the word or phrase in the file option i get 12 results but none are named as the above file.

with luck that should put MSVBVM60.DLL back. Then redelete it later

Visit this site. I have not checked to see if it is there but it was top of my Google search this time. It was not the site I used last time I accidentally deleted a .dll, but that was a year or so back.
