I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron computer.
Every time I try to open a program (Word, Excel, Photoshop, Ad-Aware, etc) I get a message that says "The program can't start because MSVCR90.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." I've tried to reinstall several programs but before the install can finish the same message appears.
This all started after I had to boot up my computer in "Safe Mode" because it crashed during a System Restore. (During the restore I was prompted to insert my back-up disc. That's when it crashed.)
