Naturally Speaking does not open

I've encountered a problem on my HP laptop.  I have been running a speech to text program called naturally speaking - worked fine till I installed Ad Buster software and cleaned out some virus? files.  After that I could not open the speech program. A pop-up alert says I have a windows file msvcrt.dll version  6.0.8397.0 and it needs ver. 6.1.8637.0.  Have not found the correct version on the web.

Can anyone help?

Reinstall the Naturally Speaking software would be the right thing to do....

Installation of the latest version of Direct X 9.0(c) may also wirk.

Run MSCONFIG, click on Expand File.. button, insert XP CD, type
MSVCRT.DLL, restore from (CD Drive),
Save file in (C:\Windows\System32).

  I looked on my HD and found a newer version that you can use.

v:   7.0.2600.2180 - msvcrt.dll

I could email it to you. Not sure if that is Kosher on EE or not. I certainly can't attach a file to this reply...

All you have to do to try it out is rename your old file to msvcrt.OLD and copy in the new one (in your c:\windows\system32\)

THen restart your computer.

Found on problem computer hard drive that existing version is v 7.0 something.  Did repair install of Windows XP, still didn't help.  Referred client to software support for Naturally Speaking.  Thanks for trying, folks!
