This problem may be caused by a corrupted installation of Microsoft Visual library. To fix it, you can try downloading and installing the official version of this software from the following web page.

Also, you can try making a clean boot of your system. In order to do that, swipe in from the right edge of the screen, in the search bar type msconfig, press enter and open the resulted software. On the new window opened, go to the Service tab, check Hide all Microsoft services in the bottom of the screen then click Disable all button. After this, go to the Startup tab and click Open Task Manager. In the new window that opened, go to the Startup tab and for every program that has its status on Enable, change it to Disable. To do that, you simply have to select it and the click Disable. Close the Task Manager and on System Configuration window click OK and restart your computer. This may solve your problem.
