    SxS error in Win7 Pro 32 bit OS

    Hello All,
    Just joined this group.

    I got a new desktop running Win7 Pro, 32 bit 3 weeks ago. Nothing special other than Apache, MySQL, PHP has been installed. I have an old 32bit which had been installed and ran successfully in SBS2003 (32 bit), SBS2008 (64 bit), WinXP (32 bit). I tried to install this 32 bit app in this new HP desktop running Win7 Pro (32 bit). I ran into SxS error. This app keep crashing. I had installed the 32 bit version of "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update" from Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update from Official Microsoft Download Center
    The version that I downloaded and installed is "vcredist_x86.EXE"
    When I restarted the app (as well as Apache, MySQL), the app still crash.
    I looked at the event manager, it kept pumping out error & warning messages all pointing out to similar verdict like below:

    These files may be available here:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\AppCrash_XXX.exe_bf78b64f8a50fb1963b2459128f9197791 f4_311dd534

    where XXX in AppCrash_XXX.exe is the app's name.


    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.6195_none_d09154e044272b9a\MSVCR 80.dll

    I googled for 2 days, people said SxS error should be fixed by installing the above SP. But in my case, it didn't.
    Can someone please give me some idea how to fix this non-stop crashing case?
    Also, the OS in this HP system is 32 bit Win7 Pro. Should I also download and install the 64 bit of the above SP? It does not make sense to run a 64 bit SP on a 32 bit system.

    Please advise.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this factory preinstalled Win7 which is the worst possible install one can have of Win7, larded with bloatware and useless duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7? HP's are the worst of all.

    That's why most tech enthusiasts will not run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything is provided in the blue link tutorial. You'll be experiencing native Win7 for the first time on that machine.

    At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

    If this doesn't resolve performance problems, work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

    I received this HP from the department 3 weeks ago. There was no bloat ware on it and I wanted the harddrive to be partitioned into 2 drive before I receive it. Maybe bloatware was clean up before the department handed it to me or they use OEM disk to install OS, I don't know. However, the 500GB harddrive that came with the desktop went non-disk I/O error intermittently within 5 days. When that happened, the disk was unresponsive. Sometime I can wait for a day and it came back to live. A new replacement hard drive, this time, 1TB (also partitioned in 2 drives) was installed in place of the original drive. I was told the OS was imaged from the original drive to this new drive. Could this "imaging" be the source of problems?

    Run the makers HD diagnostics followed by full Disk Check, then proceed with the other Troubleshooting steps which will resolve most problems or narrow it down for other steps to be applied.
