Crashing on Vista x64, possibly related to VB 6.0 Libraries?

This has been happening ever since I installed a program called Hero Editor for editing Diablo 2 save games. This is the only change I have made to my PC. That program also seems to install/overwrite the following files:

c:\windows\system32\Comdlg32.ocx

c:\windows\system32\Mscomm32.ocx

c:\windows\system32\Mscomctl.ocxl

c:\windows\system32\Msstdfmt.dll

c:\windows\system32\Msvbvm60.dll

c:\windows\system32\richtx32.ocx

c:\windows\system32\tabctl32.ocx

Does uTorrent make any use of these files, or is my crashing unrelated?

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

I was not given the option to replace, but I'll run the file checker, it may help.

The problem just started happening after I installed this program ( http://d2sector.net/downloads/index.php?dlid=161 ) so I assumed it was related.

My crash dump is posted in my original message. There was no error code. Thanks for helping me out!

EDIT: SFC found no file errors.

My mistake, you did post the dialog message ;) sorry about that. As far as what it means I don't know, except you got someone poking where it shouldn't. You can just send when the dialog pops up and if it's new the devs will work it into the next version.

If you get this error regularly, you could run the tools mentioned in the sticky (labelled helpfully Read Me in my signature) to see about solving it. If it's sporadic, then maybe first I'd suggest uninstalling that software.. see what happens.

Also crashes tend to happen on Vista, more often with 3rd party extensions/browsers and on x64 hardware with drivers which aren't up to the cut. Be wary WLAN and adapter drivers are especially finicky, so be sure they are up to date. Check both WU, and the mfg's website.
