Side By Side Config Error. Win 7 Ultimate x64.

I have trouble running a few applications as of late idk why i have tried every combination of vc++ redist versions 2005-8-10-12 and reverse .
Tried reinstalling every version of .net framework 1,2,3.5,4,4.5 etc.
Tried reinstalling the programs with the vc++ redist in the disk.
The problem arises when i try running:-
1. Civilization 5 (Gold box edition)
2.Microsoft Office 2010(pro)
as of now the other programs run fine.
Also seems to affect my usb 3g dongle(huwai).
Would really appreciate help on the matter without quotes or links .
