When I start up my computer, a box pops up with " This application has failed to start because MSVCP71.d11 was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." (it does not say which application to re-install).
At the top of the box it says "ash Disp.exe-unable to locate component"

1. Last night I uninstalled a version of internet explorer because there were two. I also uninstalled java.
2. I tried to re-install, but I could not find an application for re-installing what I uninstalled.
3. I am a technological dwarf
4. I went to DLL-files.com to down load a free automatic DLL repairer, but another window popped up that said that RegCure (the Dll repairer) is not supported on my version of Windows (which is Vista 64-bit).
5. I am having other problems but I am not sure if I should post those here or on another forum (the other problems did not happen prior to my uninstalling programs) SIGH.
Please Advise (lol)...I think that sounds so official (please advise in layman's terms).
thank you so much!!!!

Hmm... have you installed anything recently? (any apps?- I mean other than IE- or java) If you have recently installed an app and now this message is coming up, you may have to find a way to either uninstall or reinstall (an attempt to fix the first install) the program. If you did the install from a disc check the disk for damages.
If you're like me and sometimes neglect to turn your PC off for days at a time, then it could have been a program you installed last week rather than the one most recently. It all depends when you reboot etc... Also, have you had any automatic updates that you know of?

Hopefully this helps!
Yeah I have an interociter. Don't you? I've been using mine to make hot chocolate.

MSVCP71.dll is part of Microsoft Development Studio
ashdisp.exe is part of Avast AV

First, it is recommended never download from a third-party dll download site
Have you tried a System Restore point?
Have you scanned with your AV?
Try SFC.exe
