Event Event Viewer 0xc000007b Error
Does anyone have experience resolving 0xc000007b errors? If so, I could use some help. I have listed below what I've tried, so far, but have not had any success. I am running Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601). I am trying to run Event Viewer from Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools. It never starts, I just get this error:
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.
I have tried the following:
2. Run Event Viewer as Administrator
3. Re-install .NET Framework 4.6.1
4. Re-install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010
5. Boot into Safe Mode and run the application. Still errors.
If it indicates some kind of pattern, I also get the same error with other Administrative Tools:
Local Security Policy
Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
Any ideas on how to resolve this would be appreciated.

Never come across this before but someone has to produce this article - not sure if it will help though....
Are you able to perform a sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt ?
On reflection, this could be a mmc problem where the snap-ins aren't loading.
I'm not sure if the Windows Repair program from www.tweaking.com would be able to do anything for this as it may take a factory reset or reinstall to resolve.
Does reliability history give any details ?
