I've keep reading where you all recommend running HiJackthis so I downloaded it
Before download I disabled:
avg anti-virus
sygate firewall
pop-up stopper
joi express - a speed up thing from my ISP
I enabled all the java stuff
Went to explorer and told it to show all files
Then when I try to open the dll - msvbvm60.dll
I get the "open with" screen.
Doesn't this mean I don't have the program that this needs to open it?
I had already unzipped it.
Thanks.
You all are the greatest!

I don't think DLL files can't be executed by themselves. If you have a program that claims to be able to display the contents of a DLL file then you should associate it with the extension. This is normally done by the install program. What program is it that reads DLL files?

Thanks!
I don't have a clue what to do now?
I have the downloaded dll file in a folder.
Do you know how I get it installed?

I kept reading about hijack this here at the forum.
I just thought I'd download it and run it to see what condition my computer is in.
When I downloaded it - it said I was missing
the required MSVBVM60.dll that I need to open/run hijackthis.
So I downloaded MSVBVM60.dll
When I try to open the dll, that is when I get the "open with" screen which "I think" usually means I don't have the necessary program to open it.

There is no need to open that file. Once you have it in the windows/system directory HiJackThis should run fine.

Hmmm. The only thing I can suggest is to try to uninstall/reinstall HJT then reboot and try again. Leave the dll file in the windows/system directory.

I suppose I did - that was almost 2 months ago though.
I don't try anything fancy when installing windows since I think it's screwy enough w/out my help. :D
