I use Windows XP Professional.

When starting the computer this pops up: "This application failed to initialize because MMVCP70.dll not found. Installing this may fix the problem".

All I do is to click the red X to let it go away or click OK. In each case my computer starts slowly and often fails completely to start. What is this MMVCP70.dll? How do I install it? Is it safe? Where do I get it if it is safe?

This looks like a problem with MusicMatch. To fix the problem, uninstall Musicmatch software and then reinstall it. It looks like this is a common problem as lots of users are reporting the same issue via Google.

If uninstalling musicmatch doesn't work you may be able to use Windows System Restore to reset your system state to a workable condition.

If you cannot access it in normal mode you can access it in safe mode with command prompt:

1.Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt.
2.Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.
3.Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
4.Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Yes, thanks. Indeed, it could have been the musicmatch disturbance. I took up the recommendation and now my computer is not diappointing. Before that I have done the disc clean up and defragmentation. So the good things fell in place. Thank you for help.
