My high jack this software used to work. Now when I try to reach it I get a message that a DLL file is missing.I want to reinstall it to see if then it will work. It tells me to go to add/remove programs to uninstall it but 'high jack this' isn't in my list of add/remove programs. What do I do?

Unless you're running a newer version that's different, hijackthis is a single file. When you run it, it creates a BACKUP subfolder in whatever folder hijackthis.exe is in. I'd think all you need to do is copy the new file over the old one.

What dll file does it say is missing?

You mean MSVBVM60.DLL? Download and run this:

You can right click on a blank part of your desktop, choose 'new' and then 'folder'. That will create a new folder on the desktop which might be the easiest place.

When you run the download it will ask where to extract it to and you can browse to C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP and then to the new folder you created. Running the download will extract a single file, VBRUN60SP6. Then you'd run that file to install the updates (which will include MSVBVM60.DLL).

It's not all that important where you download or extract the file to. You just need to be able to find it so you can run it. After you run it you can delete both the download and VBRUN60SP6.

Thanks, I got it to run but can't use the analize this function.(version 2.0.2) with Windows ME. I wanted to send you the list of about 23 files that showed up before I clicked the fix function but I don't know to make a copy of the list. The normal way of copying doesn't work. I thought maybe you could tell me if I need to fix those files or could just let them be.Thanks

You can probably just google each suspicious file name and see what turns up. That's what I do if I'm not sure of a file.

If you can't copy and paste the file you may be able to save it as a text file, go to the analyze site and have it load the text file from wherever it's located.

Anytime you mention "hijackthis" in a response, the following warning is displayed when you click "Submit Follow Up":

"DO NOT post a HiJackThis log here unless an expert has requested it. Instead, please ask in plain english about what is wrong with your computer. You also may want to look at the automated HiJackThis analyzer by clicking HERE"

Did you click on the link & copy/paste your log file into the Analyzer? or use the browse button to locate the log file?
