Cause of msvcr80 DLL

Msvcr80.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the msvcr80 DLL file.

In some cases, msvcr80 DLL errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.

How To Fix msvcr80 DLL Errors:

Important: Do not download msvcr80 DLL from a “DLL download” website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of msvcr80.dll, it’s best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.

  • Uninstall from Windows the following programs in this orderiTunesApple Software UpdateApple Mobile Device SupportBonjourApple Application SupportiCloud, and finally MobileMe.
  • Skip over any you don’t have installed.
  • Restart your computer.
  • A proper iTunes uninstall, which you did in the first bullet point above, should have removed all Apple related software (not music, etc.) from your PC.
  • To do so, manually delete the following four folders if they exist after Windows starts back up. Skip this if things seem to be going fine so far: Note: In 64-bit versions of Windows, all of these folders will be inside a Program Files (x86) folder instead.
    1. Download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update and run it. See Am I Running a 32-bit or 64-bit Version of Windows? for help, if you’re not sure what to choose.
      Important: Try your best to complete this step. Applying this update is almost always the solution to msvcr80.dll errors.
    2. Restore msvcr80.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a “missing” msvcr80.dll file is that you’ve mistakenly deleted it.If you suspect that you’ve accidentally deleted msvcr80.dll but you’ve already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover msvcr80.dll with a free file recovery program.
      Important: Recovering a deleted copy of msvcr80.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you’re confident you’ve deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
    3. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system.
    4. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.
    5. Install any available Windows updates. The msvcr80.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
    6. Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I’ve left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer’s memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause msvcr80.dll errors as they fail.If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
    7. Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual msvcr80.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
    8. Use a free registry cleaner to repair msvcr80.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid msvcr80.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
      Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I’ve included the option here as a “last resort” attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
    9. Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the msvcr80.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
      Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install.
    10. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any msvcr80.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
