"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program: C:\Program Files... This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way."

When I open my computer, I always have this message before opening any sort of program or browser :
 "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program: C:\Program Files... This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. 
 
I am not able to see which program causes this. Also, this started appearing when Windows installed an update of Visual C++
Also, I noticed that I have many different versions of this program installed on my computer. 17  with different years such as 2005, 2008 and 2010.
How do I prevent this error from appearing each time I open my laptop?
Thank you.
