Installation failed because 6to4svc.dll is running-VB 2.1.2

I can't install VB 2.1.2 on Windows Vista 32b. I get this error during the installation:

"The application "6to4svc.dll" needs to be closed for the installation to continue."

And I have only two options:

1) retry - what is't useless

2) cancel installation - this takes around 15 minutes! And if I want to restart Windows, it takes pretty long time with message: Error, some app was not uninstalled corretly!

I don't have any "6to4svc.dll" on my C:\ First I thought that I have virus but I scanned C: with Symantec antivirus and with Windows Defender and no infiltration was detected.

Do you have showing hidden/system files enabled? This DLL is part of Windows and does some network translation stuff for you.
