Possible corrupt files/incorrect dlls RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have been having some trouble determining whether I have corrupt files on my computer because it is somewhat slower now.  All programs work just fine, however, I have a funny feeling that there are some corrupt files in my C:\Windows folder and MSVCR90.dll is messed up.

    I have made a post on my blog describing the issue in more detail http://bit.ly/adbWmp  I may sound desperate and that is because I am, especially after the whole Windows Live fiasco I had.  I have also asked the technet forum for an answer on this post http://bit.ly/9uPXV1 with no luck.  They actually referred me to this forum for help http://bit.ly/9BbUWh.

    Please, if somebody can help me find the answer, that would be excellent. 

    I mainly am looking for answers in the following forum http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/office2010

  • Hi Win7guru09,

    MSVCR90.DLL is a running time library from Visual Studio 2008. Some software developed by VC++ 2008 requires VC++ 2008 CRT to run. Based on the information, there is no clue show MSVCR90.DLL is a root cause to slow down your computer or specific software.

    I don’t know why you believe the problem caused by this file. Normally, when we face such problem, we recommend you using some antivirus software to scan your system and make sure there is no malware and virus slow down your system.

    In addition, I notice the version of the VC++ 2008 CRT (9.0.21022.8) is not the last version, we recommend you download and install the last version of VC++ 2008 CRT. Here is the link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=2051a0c1-c9b5-4b0a-a8f5-770a549fd78c&displaylang=en

    If you have any concern, please let me know.
