Error 0xc000007b when trying to load games


I have a problem since my computer has been formated : some of my games doesn't load anymore and give me, when I try to load them by being "administrator", the nice error 0xc000007b.

Now, I'm a n00b, in the sense that I never had an informatic course, but since I have internet and my brain, I managed to try some ideas to solve the problem. Of course, nothing worked, or else I wouldn't be here.

So I tried to uninstall/reinstall the game, to do the same with .Net Framework (4.5), to add things to directx (I didn't try to uninstall, since I fear the consequences), I also tried to remove my old files from My Games, to manually add dlls on my game folder (using dependency walker to know which one I could lack, by the way it detect some lacking), I uninstalled Steam and reinstalled it. Of course I rebooted quite a few time...

So, did I miss an important step (like uninstalling the C++ things)? What would you recommend me to do except format again?

Thank you for your answers.
