Windows 7: Visual C++ Problem with msdia80.dll

Visual C++ Problem with msdia80.dll

I have a file msdia80.dll in my C drive, now I looked it up and such and found it was a bug being there when installed or something along the lines of that.

I then found this so I went and download the 64 bit security update it recommended under resolution, and now after downloading it the files still there and I don't know if I messed anything by adding more visual c++

control panel shows me with

Any Advice on what I could do with the mdia80.dll file and is there any of these visuals I might have to uninstall?

The laptop that I'm using now came with 5 or 6 versions like you mention. I uninstalled them all and have yet to find an application that needs them. Your mileage may vary
