If the error started appearing soon after you have installed a new application or device driver, then it is possible that the error is occurring due to problems in the installation. To fix the error in this case, uninstall the software you installed and reinstall it.

Many times, errors related to DLL files, such as Msvcr71.dll, occur due to malware infections. Download, install and run Malwarebytes.

Hope this helps.
