Hey everyone,

I'm new to this whole thing but I could use your help. Today I was going through my computer and deleted some files that i didnt think was necessary but apparently one of them was. Since the removal of one of the files I have been getting an error that says:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error

Program: C:\Windows\Living~1.SCR

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application support team for support.

I get the message right after i start my computer. I'm not sure what i deleted but if someone could give me some help, It would be greatly appreciated. I use mozilla as my browser instead of IE, and I added some extensions that I ended up uninstalling shortly after because they didnt come in as handy as i would of originally thought. So i didnt know if that could of been the problem as well. thanks in advance.

if its still in the recycle been you can restore it from there. you can also check ms and download the visual basic 6 runtime library.

The Google toolbar is a common cause of runtime errors.
