A MSVCR80.dll error message appeared while using iTunes

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

So, I was using iTunes on my computer and after a while my iTunes stopped working. An error message, then appeared that said something like program can't start because MSVCR80.dll is missing, try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. I tried reinstalling but it doesn't seem to have any effect. How can I fix this?
