I was going to "review" a photo in MY pictures file, & message popped up saying MSVCR71.dll is missing. & it would not enlarge "preview"

 

how did  it become missing all on it's own & I don't even know what it is.

 

Thanks for any input

There seems to be multiple reasons for getting that error message. Below is a link that gives info

on those causes and how to repair. Seems quite comprehensive.

It mentions malware as a possible cause. In most cases the user should be seeing other signs of malware. Such

as more ads, popups, excessive processing, slow/ or misdirected browsing, etc.

What made it disappear & what is it actually?

 

I will try the link you gave me , but I have tried other links & Then I get to the part where they want your credit card #.

 

I shouldn't have to pay for something that I didn't get rid of

 

Thanks

Well, had you of read the info in the link first, you would of seen that it did not want you to get the file from anywhere but

its original source.

If you do a search for msvcr71.dll under windows start button you likely have several copies elsewhere. It could be calling the one from a certain directly like C:\Windows\SysWoW64 That might be the problem. Check if it's in that directory and if not copy one of the others into there. If that doesn't work then type in run regsvr32 msvcr71.dll might fix the registry corruption. If that doesn't work then try cmd.exe as administrator and type: SFC /Scannow. Also, try updating your windows OS from Microsoft's updates.
