ok, what windows are you on?

XP, Vista, 7, 8/8.1 , 10 ? (I guess 10 with a new PC)

I am a little bit confused, because this kind of error seems to happen when a dll file is missing.

But you wrote people told you to delete a dll file to fix this error.

I guess you tried a simple re-install, but that didn't work?

Well they told me its something related to dll files so either missing or corrupted files. I've tried deleting some but it takes way too long because i have to make my account the 'owner' for a lot of them individually. Basically I tried deleting all of them and was going to reinstall all of them but stopped at only a few and re downloaded because i would get another error about missing some files so i got them back from the recycle bin which made me go back to getting the first error
