Help! MSVCR80.dll nightmare

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Mr. Pickles, Feb 13, 2014.

  1. I've been trying to remedy a missing MSVCR80.dll file for days. My modem is on the fritz now too and needs to be replaced so I can barely navigate the web for solutions.

    I've tried MacAfee virus scans to see if its malware or a virus, running PC Health Advisor, bought Reg Edit Pro (mistake! did nothing) and tried to update a C+ visual update, but nothing has worked. ITunes definitely won't open and some of the pre-installed Dell programs that I don't use aren't loading either.

    I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell XPS with an i5 quad core.

    Please help!

    Try a system restore to before the problem started.

    It is a common problem and it happened to my computer.
    It occurred after the last Microsoft update.
    You can download the file from the Microsoft website.

    I believe I just had the same thing happen last week. There is a step by step guide on apple's FAQ about it. Basically uninstall all of the Apple products in a specific order and then reinstall iTunes. Took about 15 minutes and I am back to smooth sailing again.:)
