Trying to do a full system recovery but disc will not run 'MSVBVM....

Hi - I'd really appreciate a little help please! I have a sony vaio using Windows XP Home. I'm trying to do a full system recovery from the original recovery disc. I put the disc in as a test a few days ago and it went through autoplay fine etc, but I didn't proceed.

Now I'm actually trying to do the system recovery (and desperately need to do it tonight!) I'm putting the disc in but it will not 'autoplay', giving a message that 'MSVBVM60.DLL' is uninstalled so the application cannot function correctly.

I've searched for the MSVBVM60.DLL file and it appears to be located on my laptop fine within the WINDOWS/service pack files / etc folders and I can't see any reason why it would be uninstalled. I also can't figure out how to reinstall it. When I try to open it I need to specify a program to do so, and I've no idea.

Basically all I need is a method to kick off the recovery disc, and then hopefully the system recovery will take it from there? Hopefully this is really straightforward and makes sense to someone!! Many thanks Amy -- Rascal_net

Then press enter key. Now it should say press any key to boot to CD drive. Make sure the installation disc is in the drive.
