I would get rid of the copied file in the both folder C:\ & D:\.

Seeing your specs, take the option: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update x64.

Right click on the .exe when finish downloading to unblock it, then run the package.

Yes you can delete directly the .dll.

There's:

-IA64.exe
-x64.exe (looks you're on x64 based system, so this one is for you)
-x86.exe ( as optional you can also install this one for some x32bits apps)

Internally it says it is version 8.00.50727.762 (SP.050727-7600), but the file is 904,704 bytes instead of the 625,152 bytes it should be. Check the file size against the one in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VC. If they don't match you may have a bogus file.

I think that in my case this one is malware-related.
Yes, these 2 different msdia80.dll's do not match in size. The orphaned x64 .dll installed at the root of drive is 904,704 bytes and the x32 .dll which is filed and installed correctly is smaller in size at 625,152 bytes.
