So here's the story. I suck at computers, see? We lost our internet during an ice storm and I figured I'd take the time to clean out my machine. I went into programs and ripped out everything that wasn't nailed down. All my downloadable content, gone. I looked anywhere and everywhere to find things that didn't look interesting and threw them out.
So now on every startup, I get this message that says, try re-installing msvcr100.dll. I do my research, found this place, and tried to replace it. Now I get a message titled Bad Image. Windows has trouble reading the .dll, it basically says there's either a problem with the program or it wasn't designed for windows. Try re-installing it.
I have done this at least a dozen times. I've extracted it into my system32 and my system. I'm not dragging and dropping an already extracted program either. I'm extracting straight from the .zip into the system32 (don't know if that makes a difference).
I've concluded from clues that I've gotten over hours of banging my head on this keyboard that for whatever reason, my computer can't read the DLL itself. I'm out of hints here, the FAQ was no help and from the research I've done from other forums, this seems to be a fairly unique problem.
I don't even know the right question to ask anymore. I'm stumped beyond reason.
