The Avisynth plugin RemoveDirtMC.avs is a popular denoiser that can clean general grunge, grain, some spots and some dropouts from video. Especially recommended for analog captures and DV compression noise. But some users have complained that trying to run the filter results in Avisynth error messages.

RemoveDirtMC requires some older Avisynth plugins hat are still in wide use and work with old and new versions of Avisynth from 2.5 onward. The siupport plugins required are in RemoveDirt v0.9 and RemoveGrain v1.0. These plugins come with multiple filters and are attached here as .zip files. The .zips also contain install instructions and original html docs.

In addition:
In its ongoing effort to generate confusion, obsolescence, and general dissatisfaction, Microsoft in its infinite wisdom did not include VisualC v7.1 runtime libraries in Windows 7, 8, or 10. They also ceased supporting the runtimes on their website. So if you have programs, games, or video apps that require 2003 .NET and VC++ runtime files, you're out of luck.

But wait! Several geek sites and Microsoft expatriates found a simple solution. What you require are two .dll's, and fortunately the .dll's don't require registry entries. All you have to do is have them in your wobegotten Win7/8/10 systems. If you're using XP Sp2/Sp3, those .dll's will be present.

The two files are Msvcp71.dll and Msvcr71.dll. A .zip containing them is attached. All that's needed is to copy the two files into the following locations:
- In 32-bit Windows, both dll's belong in /System32.
- In 64-bit Windows, both dll's belong in /SYSWOW64
These two dll's are 32-bit only.

There are other efforts to get these files into later Windows systems, but unfortunately the older updates that installed them won't run in Win7 or later, or have been discontinued by Microsoft, and even if they run they install other files that you don't want anyway.

Of course, you can always upgrade to XP.
