    First, please reboot your computer and see if that solves the issue.

    If not, the cause most likely is a missing or conflicting Visual Studio runtime library.
    Please download and install one of the following redistributable packages:

    Note: Install the "x86" one, if your system is 32bit Windows, the "x64" one if you have a 64bit OS.

    Should the above not solve the issue, then your version of Safari may require another version of the runtime.
    Please search in Google for "microsoft visual c++ 2008 redistributable" and download and install that as well.
