pop-up dll error on some applications, unable to open document

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 14
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

pop-up error as follows: c:\windows\system32\MSVCP112dll. is either not designed to run or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using original installation media or contact your system administrator or software vendor for support. Error status Oxc000012f

Opening Chrome or email or bank app is fine but not the document/spreadsheet app. Even trying to open a document results in this error. Clicking on the error a few times makes it disappear until l try to open another app.

NOTE: Windows came pre-installed from the vendor, l do not have an installation media neither is there an administrator as it is a home computer
