Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have nod32 and malwarebytes as my anti virus and anti spyware protection, I also have this hijackthis that they always ask for the log to review but today when I tried to open the hijackthis, this error appears and hijack will not start.

HijackThis.exe – Unable To Locate Component

This application has failed to start because MSVBVM60.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Anybody encountered this error?

The application fails to load as it is unable to find the specified dll file. It is quite commonly occurred error. This can be caused when you install any other tools which may damage or delete these dll even the antivirus tool and spyware may also delete these tools. The best way is to restore back your system to earlier stage where you didn't observe this issue. You can also download the dll online but it is not advisable to use those dll's. Most probably you can restore your system to earlier stage where it was working fine for you. It will help you accessing the hijackthis application back into working condition.
