    Has anyone seen this before. While in IE5, I get an illegal operation message. When I click Details, it says...

    Explorer cause an invalid page fault in module MSVBVM60.DLL

    I can't find anything on Microsoft's knowledge base. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    You should not be getting Visual Basic run time module error messages just opening Internet Explorer windows, unless a Visual Basic program is attached itself to IE. You may have a virus/Spyware/Ad-ware/Trojan/Highjacker on your system.

    Do an on-line virus scan here :-


    or here :-


    And a trojan scan here :-


    Then Please Download and install SpyBot,


    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

    Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

    Well I did find out there is no virus on this pc. I did find out that this msvbvm60.dll file gets loaded when FoxPro is installed and that is part of the Visual Basic Studio, correct?

    Will uninstalling FoxPro or deleting this file help at all?

    There are in fact quite a few errors for ipfs in that dll, but they are not normally caused by IE unless the dll itself is corrupt. Have you installed and run Spybot as suggested? It is complimentary to a virus scan and looks for different things.

    Also, do give us a copy of your StartupList following the directions on this site:


    If nothing is found that explains the problem we will have you update your VB runtime files. It is a needed file, do not delete it.

    By the way, if you can generate the startuplist, the file is not corrupt, since it is required to do so.
