I get the error "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect." when I try to install various programs.
I have done the following:
1. Ran sfc /scannow
2. Ran chkdsk c: /r
3. Re-installed the Windows Installer
4. Ran avg, malwarebytes and combofix to find and clean malware if that was the problem.
5. Ran Windows Updates
