Fix "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" Error

Fix "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" Error
While opening any app in your windows machine, if you encounter an error – "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" then you need to troubleshoot a few things which I'll let you know about in this post. But before troubleshooting the issue, let me tell you the reason behind this error. This error messages pops up when you try to open an application that requires VCRUNTIME140.DLL file but due to any corruption or data loss, it is not able to access the file. VCRUNTIME140.DLL is a Microsoft C Runtime Library application extension which is located in the System32 folder of the C:/Windows directory. It's size is around 86KB and it is installed by Microsoft Visual Studio. Any missing file from Microsoft Visual Studio runtime library can case such errors to be popped up. Let's see how to fix this error:
  • First of all, run the following commands in cmd with admin rights.
sfc /scannow
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • If the problem is not fixed by running the above commands, you can try to download the missing dll file from internet and paste it in the location where it is supposed to be, usually it is C:/Windows/System32. After pasting the dll file, restart the computer and check if the application starts working.
    • The other possible solution is to install the latest from Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package from here.
    • Try to re-register the dll file. Read the process Here.
    • If the above two steps don't work, then try uninstalling the appplication completely using Revo Uninstaller Pro and delete all the remaining leftovers of the application and reinstall the application. Most of the times, new Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages get installed at the time of the installation of the application itself.
    • If none of the above steps worked, then repair your windows OS with the installation media or perform an in-place system upgrade which will repair all the corrupted files of your operating system.
    Similer Errors with same solution:
    api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing
    MSVCR110.dll is missing
    d3compiler_43.dll is missing
    MSVCP140.dll is missing.

    Get Free Cash - Google Launches Tez : A UPI based Payment System in India

    Google Launches Tez : A UPI based Payment System in India
    Google has launched "Tez", it's first UPI based payment system in India. UPI is one of the best ways for cashless and cardless transactions which is fast and secure. All you need is to link your bank account with the UPI enabled app (PhonePe, Kotak 911 etc) and you will get your unique UPI payment address. If any other user sends money to your UPI address, the amount will be credited instantly in your bank account and the best thing is, there are no transaction charges like IMPS transfer. Let's see how to install and use the Google's Tez app:

    1. First of all, you need to know that to be able to use UPI, you must have a bank account and a debit card for your account because you will need to use the debit card details to generate UPI address and UPI transaction PIN. The most important thing, your mobile number which you use to sign up must be linked with the bank account becasue the app will send a one time password to link your bank account with the UPI app (Don't panic, it is safe and there won't be any unauthorized transactions from your account)

    2. After making sure you have fulfilled all the requirements, you can start creating your UPI address with Tez app. Download and install Tez app in your phone using this link : DOWNLOAD HERE

    3. After clicking the link, you will be redirected to google play store. Install the app in your phone and open it. It will ask you to select language, choose any language of your choice and click on the small arrow icon from the top right corner of the screen (see screenshots).

    install tez

    4. On the next screen, Tez will ask for your mobile number. Enter your mobile number that is linked with your bank account and make sure that you are using the same mobile number in your phone in which you are installing Tez app. After entering the phone number, it will ask you to select your google account.

    sign up

    5. On the next screen, it will ask you to secure Tez app. You can either use your current screen lock pattern or can set a new PIN. After setting the protection, app will open.

    protect

    6. Now close the app and reopen it. You will see an option to add bank account with the app. Tap over "Add Bank Account" and select your bank in which you have your account opened.

    link account

    7. After you select your bank, Tez will try to find and verify whether any account in that particular bank is linked with your mobile number or not. If any account is linked with your phone number in the selected bank, it will show you the account details and will ask you to set a UPI PIN. If you have not used your account with any other UPI app and it doesn't have any UPI PIN, you can set a new UPI PIN (that will require your debit card details) and if you already used your account with any UPI app, you can use your existing UPI PIN to finish the linking process. Your own UPI ID for Tez app which can be used to receive payments from others will be listed with your account, you may make a note of it, if you want.

    upi pin

    8. After successful linking of the account and UPI creation, open the app and tap over "Pay Using Phone or Account Number, QR or UPI ID" option as shown in the screenshot. On the next screen, select whether you want to send money through account number or UPI address.

    start payment

    9. I'm testing the app by sending Rs.100 to my account account through UPI. You can also send money to any UPI address or bank account using the options available in the app.

    send to upi
    money sent

    10. That's it. You can use Tez app for your cashless transactions now.

    REFER AND EARN PROGRAM
    Google is running a refer and earn program for the Tez app. If you sign up for it and send money to another Tez user, both of you will get Rs.51 as referral reward which will be credited in your bank. To get your Rs.51 reward, you may send Rs.1 only at the upi address ashutoshkushwaha22@okhdfcbank and after the successful transaction, you will get Rs.51 back in your account. Office is valid till 1st April 2018 only.

    Here is a small explaination:

    1. If you install the Tez app from my referral link, you should see my photo in the app home screen. If you don't see, then also you can use pay using "Phone or account number option" to ashutoshkushwaha22@okhdfcbank.

    2. If you click on my pic, you should see a message "Welcome to Tez! Make your first payment and we each get Rs.51!"

    3. At the bottom, click "Pay" and transact Rs.1 to me and after the successful transaction, you will get a message "You earned a reward".

    send Rs.1

    4. Tap over "You eared a reward" and you should see that Rs.51 has been rewarded to you. In the app's homepage, you can see a rewards and offers section, you may check your rewards by clicking "Rewards" too.

    get Rs.51 cashback

    5. This is an additional step and you can leave it. But if you transact Rs.51 to any other Tez user which you never paid, you and him, both will get a scratch card which will give you extra amount as bonus.
    bonus cashback

    So don't miss join now to earn free cash as much as you can. :-)

    Note: If you already have installed Tez without using any referral link, then you can still get Rs.51 referral reward. Just tap on the 3 dots from the top right corner of tez app to open the menu and tap "Referral Code" option. A new page will open asking you to enter referral code, enter 3h5AZ there and apply. That's it, if you send Rs.1 to any tez user, you will get Rs.51 reward instantly in your account.

    Get refund for your Amazon order without returning the product : Scam Alert

    Get refund for your Amazon order without returning the product : Exposing the Scam
    In facebook or in some forums, you might have seen some guys offering refund for your amazon products without returning the product, even after delivery of the product. Sounds interesting, right? I also went through a post in a facebook group where a guy posted that he will provide refund for Amazon products. He was asking for 30% of the amount as his commission once you get the refund in your account. The only condition was that the product must be delivered within 30 days of making the deal with the guy.
    I knew that he would definitely do any kind of scam to get the refund because earlier also, people were fooling amazon saying that their order status shows delivered in the amazon account but they never got the product delivered to them and amazon was providing refunds to them without any investigation from their side.
    I thought I should play prank on the scammer to know exactly what he is going to do with amazon to get the refund. So I contacted the guy and told him that I want to get the refund. He asked my user id and password. I gave him my amazon login id and password (I changed the password temporarily before providing it to him) and after a few minutes, I got an email from amazon support that the conversation was ended in between and I reported that the ordered item was missing in the box. After a few minutes, I got another mail from amazon that the refund for my order has been started and the amount will be sent to my credit card.
    The guy who asked for the refund on behalf of me tried to convince me that he is going to provide me the refund, not amazon. But I got the "Trick" he was using to scam amazon and I told him that I'm going to report amazon about this fraud. (I told him that I'm a government employee and I can't be involved in this scam as it would ruin my career, lol, but later I told him that the whole process was actually a trap to expose the illegal practice he had been doing from long time). He tried threatening me that he is going to file a complaint against me in Amazon and then he deactivated his facebook account.
    Well, the whole thing was funny for me but it is actually a serious issue for Amazon. These guys are causing loss to amazon and this is not a right thing according to me. I'm a customer of Amazon and it never disappointed me with its services so I thought I should be good for Amazon too. And yes, I sent the mail to amazon and sent a tweet to amazon to cancel the refund request for my order which they did before the payment was credited to my account, thank God! I'm uploading the single screenshot of the whole conversation with the scammer and the refund mail from Amazon.

    Check the screenshot of conversation: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1WpxeCQzpcPTk5FRHdESUxmSlk (Zoom the image to see the text clearly)

    This is the mail which let me know what did that guy do to request for refund. That's why I came to know that he said that he got the product delivered but the box was empty. Check the screenshot here : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1WpxeCQzpcPUWJsN3RfSENjUE0

    In the previous mail, the immediate refund request was cancelled and the case was escalated to accounts or refund team, and surprisingly they processed the refund. See the screenshot of  the Refund Mail: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1WpxeCQzpcPYVVhQU9jYThMVEE

    I've seen some proofs that people got full refund for iPhones too using this scam. Just one request to amazon, please check the things before providing the refunds for the cases that claim "My ordered item was missing from the box" because it is very rare and there are 99% chances that the person who is reporting this kind of situation to get refund is a SCAMMER.
    I hope amazon will improve their policies for the refund and will do the full investigation for these kind of fraud in future and will minimize the loss to their sellers and their own company.

    ***UPDATE***
    I had a conversation with Amazon India team on twitter and on their chat support link and reported this issue and got the assurance that Amazon will work internally to look for this matter and will take action against the scammers. Today, some random guys shared the screenshots of mails they received from amazon. Looks like Amazon has started taking action agains the culprits.

    Concept of online coupon codes and offers

    online stores and coupons
    As far as business point of view is concerned, coupon code and promo codes are specific way to promote products and brands among customers. This is one of the most specific ways to bring your products in the market.  Although there is various traditional and commercial ways to promote business but as per market demand online coupon codes are the best way to get recognition and response from customer. Promoscode is offering quite similar facility for users to change the way of shopping.

    At the point when coupon codes initially started flowing, they were not frequently found on the retailer's site. Rather, coupon codes showed up on related shopping locales so as to lead customers to the retailer's online store. Today, numerous retailers keep on having coupons on related sites, additionally offer at least one coupon code on their store's sites or through weekly messages that are conveyed to their clients.

    The most ideal approach to find a coupon code is by utilizing your most loved web crawler, for example, Google and writing in "Coupon Code". This will create a rundown of sites that offer coupon codes. Customers would then be able to visit the sites and look at the coupon investment funds that are accessible.  In some cases customers can discover coupon codes for particular stores after they have chosen what they need to buy. This should be possible by putting the retailer's name and coupon code into the web index.

    For instance, if a customer knew they needed to buy a dress from stores, they could locate the accessible coupon codes for products by entering "discount coupon codes". A rundown of sites would then be created and they would then visit the sites to look for a discount coupon that they could use to avail the discount while purchasing the dress.  

    There are various resources that avail various types of coupons and deals for different products.  Clients may get these coupons from different sources, including national daily newspapers and the Internet, with sites offering free printable basic need coupons can be printed at home and utilize them at retail location. Some real basic need chains additionally deliver advanced coupons that might be stacked onto the retailer's dependability card at home, or at a coupon apportioning machine situated in store. In 2011, the best five vehicles for dispersing purchaser bundled merchandise coupons in the U.S. were: the Free Standing Insert, a coupon booklet circulated through daily papers and different sources (89.4%); in-store appropriation (4.2.%); post office based mail (2.3%); magazines (1.5%); and coupons disseminated on or in item bundling (1.3%). Other conveyance strategies together represented fewer than 2% of all coupons dispersed. There are coupon-giving sites that furnish clients with coupons of different stores. These locales gather coupons from different sources. www.promoscode.in brings maximum numbers of stores and deals for customers and makes online shopping experience the best and economical.  These things are vital and beneficial for customers that will make their task and budget easier.

    ' Prompt the user as which direction they wish to
    ' sort the worksheets.
    '
       iAnswer = MsgBox("Sort Sheets in Ascending Order?" & Chr(10) _
         & "Clicking No will sort in Descending Order", _
         vbYesNoCancel + vbQuestion + vbDefaultButton1, "Sort Worksheets")
       For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
          For j = 1 To Sheets.Count - 1
    '
    ' If the answer is Yes, then sort in ascending order.
    '
             If iAnswer = vbYes Then
                If UCase$(Sheets(j).Name) > UCase$(Sheets(j + 1).Name) Then
                   Sheets(j).Move After:=Sheets(j + 1)
                End If
    '
    ' If the answer is No, then sort in descending order.

    What is a Ransomware and how to prevent it

    Ransomware is a kind of malicious software which encrypts the files of infected PC upon execution and it's designed to block the access of files in a computer until a sum of money is paid to the hacker. Once the money is paid, the hacker sends a decryption key to the victim which can be used to decrypt the files and get the access back. Most of the times, even if you pay the amount, the victim doesn't get any decryption key and it is almost impossible to track the attacker because they accept the money through bitcoin in encrypted form that is very difficult to track.

    What exactly happens when a pc gets infected by a Ransomware?
    Well, earlier, ransomware software were too easy to get rid of for a little techie people who knew about windows task manager and startup items. I have personally analyzed some old ransomwares and what they did was just executed themselves and created a startup entry for their main application to show that scary screen which says that your computer or files have been locked and you need to pay some money to the attacker to get back the access to the pc. It could be easily closed by ending the ransomware process from task manager and the malicious file could easily be stopped from auto executing by running msconfig command through RUN and deleting the startup entry of the ransomware software. Some ransomware create events in windows to auto download and execute themselves even after deleting the ransomware software and these kind of ransomwares are bundled with software cracks which are actually malwares. But that too could be stopped by deleting the particular event or task from the computer.
    But these days, ransomware are being coded in a much complicated way that are FUD (fully undetectable) for so many anti-virus software and the encryption technology used by the ransomware is very difficult to crack so they are getting more dangerous as they are not detectable and non-removable by any antivirus. Although some antivirus vendors like KasperSky and Malwarebytes are providing decrypting tools to recovered the locked files, there are still so many ransomware available online which decryption algorithm is still not available.

    Recently "WCry", referred as "WannaCry" ransomware infected about more than 57000 computers worldwide this friday (12th May 2017) and created a panic among the computer users. It affected hospitals, schools, offices and government agencies. After infecting the computer, it's asking to pay $300 to unlock the files and I'm not sure whether the attacker really sent any decryption key to decrypt the files for anyone who paid the amount.
    wannacry ransomware screen
    Well, this ransomware was accidently stopped by a cybersecurity researcher which is tweeting with the user name @MalwareTechBlog. The researcher bought the domain name used by the ransomware on a website called NameCheap.com for $10.69, and set it up on a server in Los Angeles which stopped the Ransomware as the domain name used by the ransomware was never booked and setting up the domain on the server stopped the ransomware to spread.

    How to prevent from getting infected with ransomware?
    But still the risk is not over and the attacker might spread the ransomware again by changing the code of it and by making it more difficult to decrypt. So what can be actually done to stop the ransomware to infect your PC? Well, there is no any 100% working solution available for it yet but yes, with the few precautions, you can prevent it. I'm listing a few tips which you can follow to be safe from the ransomware:
    1. Don't open any file which you receive through mail from unknown people. The file might be of any extension so don't think that you are opening a safe file and get trapped.
    2. Use sandbox before opening any suspicious file which you think might not be any virus. Using a sandbox creates a virtual space in your computer and keeps your computer safe in case if you encounter any virus in your sandbox.
    3. Install any good antivirus and anti-malware in your computer and keep it up to date. You may use Malwarebytes, Kaspersky, AVG Internet Security etc.
    4. Apart from antivirus, you can use Anti-Ransomware tools too such as Bitdefender AntiRansomware, Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware, EMET, Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware tool etc.
    5. Disable SMB service in windows services to prevent the ransomware to be executed. To do so, open appwiz.cpl from RUN and click Turn Windows Features ON or OFF. Now look for SMB 1.0 and uncheck it and click OK. Usually you can find this option in Windows Server Edition OS.
    program and features
    turn windows features ON or Off
    Alternatively you can run the powershell command too which is given below:
    "Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName smb1protocol"

    Note: If you are sharing files among different computers, then don't turn off SMB feature. File sharing won't work after disabling this feature.

    6. Install all the security patches and updates from Microsoft to keep your PC safe. TO install the important security patches, use the following links:

    How to suspend or cancel your Jio SIM yourself

    How to suspend or cancel your Jio SIM yourself
    After using the free services of Reliance Jio, so many users want to suspend or cancel the Jio SIM and there are so many reasons behind it. The first reason is that users are afraid of Porting their numbers into Reliance jio because they are not sure what plans will Jio offer in future and the major problem is the network coverage. Reliance jio doesn't work in 2G/3G mode but other SIM Cards do, so usually in the areas where 4G network coverage is not so good, they won't be able to use their phone and can't make calls. Second is internet speed, I personally noticed that in most of the areas, JIO speed is very less and sometimes it doesn't work at all, even if we see full network signal indicated by the device. But with our primary networks, we can switch to 3G or even 2G in case of urgent data need. Third is frequent network drop which is happening from last few days. So overall users are not sure how will the Jio network perform that's why they don't want to switch to Jio.
    Let's come back to the main topic, i.e. How to suspend or cancel your Jio SIM yourself:

    • Login to the JIO Website from the link: https://www.jio.com/Jio/portal/jioLogin (Use your login credentials of MyJio app to login)
    • Once you are logged in, you will see a settings button on the top right screen. Click on that.
