For some weeks now I have been driven mad by an error that seems to occur in the morning after my PC has woken up. Various apps that use dot net and visual c++ redist libraries stop working and give the following error:
The program can't start because MSVCR100_CLR0400.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
In this case it came from MySQL workbench but I have had the same with other apps. The solution is quite simple, I do a repair installation of dot net 4 and vcredist_x86.exe and the application runs again. However the following morning it MAY do it again. I put the word may in caps because sometimes it will go up to a week without misbehaving and then it will start happening again.
I have changed my AV solution from Trend Micro to Webroot and that made no difference. I disabled Macrium Reflect nightly backup and thought that had solved it but it has just started happening again. I have run various Malware scanners with no benefit. I have looked at the event log but cannot see anything there (although I am not exactly sure what I am looking for)
Has anyone got any suggestions? I dont want to reinstall windows as I only did it recently - and come to think of it - the problem has only been happening since this re-installation.
I am really frustrated by this and would like to know what is going on and how to fix it.
My OS is Win 7 x64
