The procedure entry point could not be located…

Recently dealt with an issue where a user received errors when launching a large number of both third party and native Windows 7 applications including notepad.exe. Turns out this started after the user installed an application from the internet that required the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 without having the Visual C++ Redistributable installed. Even after uninstalling the application, the error remains.
