Adobe Reader 8 error, the procedure entry point could not be located in the dll

There was a problem with my offsite backup and they gave me a hotfix which corrupted my drive. Had to run diskrepair and required me to uninstall and reinstall several programs one of which was Adobe Reader 8. Now unble to open Adobe Reader 8, just get the message The procedure entry point?pbump@$basic_streambuf@DU?$char_traits@D@std@@@std@@IAEXH@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library MSVCP80.dll. I have tried to ininstall and reinstall Adober Reader several times, also downloaded MSVCP80.dll and placed it in windows system 32 folder, all this with no success. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, but I have restarted the computer many times. I have also cleaned the registry to see if it would correct this error, but it hasn't.
