    Visual Basic Runtime 6

    I have a feeling or sense picked up somewhere this program is rather susceptible to bad things happening to my computer. If I'm correct, what must I do to protect myself? A program I want to try requires VB 6.

    Get the file directly from Microsoft.
    Scan it for viruses just in case.


    * Before starting the download, create a download directory on your computer.

    * Click the link to begin downloading. When prompted by the download software, choose the option Save this program to disk and click OK. Then select the directory you created on your computer.

    * Run the file from the download directory. When prompted, select the same directory you created on your computer. You will be expanding the contents of the EXE into this directory.
    The Download

    I know of no vulnerability specifically targetted at the VB runtime library. I've installed this on several PCs without fail when a program or application required it.
