: As any other DLL file, stdvcl40.dll could become infected, so the best thing you can do is try to "disinfect" the file with a good anti-virus program such as AVG, or delete the file and replace it by a known good one.
: Usually stdvcl40.dll is located in C:\windows\system32. You can find a replacement file on the web, for example type "stdvcl40.dll" as keyword at Google's search engine. If this doesn't solve your problems, ask us again.


I redownloaded the files and had the same problem with AVG 7.5 identifying stdvcl40.dll as infected with GENERIC2.FRY.

However, I ran TrendMicro and Etrust online scanners on the archive as well as the extracted archive and they did not report a virus.

I also had Delphi 6 PE on my machine and its version of stdvcl40.dll was not a problem.
