System Error When Opening Certain Apps

Dear People,
I am sorry if this is wrong forum section, I am new here!
I am currently getting annoyed by an error and I am struggling to get help. This forum IMO is better than the MSDN and TechNet forums because many people manage to solve their problems here! My computer is not even 1 year old and a few weeks ago (maybe 3) an error saying "The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-heap-l1-2-0.dll is missing from you computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." is popping up. After I click OK, the application starts normally. This only happens with Visual Studio 2012, Visual Studio 2010 Express, Dxtory and MonoDevelop (Unity Version). I have also got Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate Trial on my computer and before this error didn't use to pop up. Yesterday I managed to find something new. When I opened Visual Studio 2012 and created an app with all the frameworks, the only one that gave me the error is .NET Framework 4.5. I think I will have to do a repair install of Windows 7. Please note that: This error did not use to come up before, I tried uninstalling .NET Framework and installing it again, I tried repairing it, I tried repairing Visual Studio 2012 too but that didn't solve the problem. Could the problem be Visual Studio 2010 Express?
Thanks

Thanks for your reply,
The System File Checker came up with,

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Hi there ... Have you had any updates recently? Also do you have any Restore points prior to the issue ?

Thanks again for your reply!
I do not really remember but doing a System Restore can get me in trouble because in 3 weeks I have surely made a lot of things! I still briefly remember that a few weeks before this problem started to appear there was an update. I am not really sure.

When you say you have made a lot of things .... Is there no way you can back them up ? Ans as the trial version is nearly up ... You could try Uninstalling that .... But some how i cant see that working

No I do not think there is a way to back them up since I do not know what I have done and the all of my Restore Points where created after this error started to pop up. Not to consider myself a professional but this problem did not use to happen even with Visual Studio installed. I will try to remove it when the trial expires. Do you think that doing a repair installation of Windows 7 will help me?

I installed Visual Studio 2012 with Visual Studio 2010 because of XNA Studio and I am pretty sure the trouble is not coming from Visual Studio because if it was them, this problem would have appeared when I installed Visual Studio 2012. Visual Studio 90 day trial means about 12 weeks. I installed Visual Studio 2012, then 4 weeks after this problem started to occur. Sorry if I am not obeying you but many people said that uninstalling these programs will mess your registry!

No you are quite right ..... Have you tried a Repair ? I have a friend that uses Visual Studio have contacted them .... Waiting for a reply .... So maybe you might want to hold fire on doing any thing for a few days .... Maybe i might be able to help you better then ... Or maybe another Member here might be able to enlighten you
