Windows 7: FWPUCLNT.DLL issues, Can't load anything or do anything...

FWPUCLNT.DLL issues, Can't load anything or do anything...

Hello there, I've recently came into an issue with my laptop... I turned off my computer and turned it on (most likely for updates I've forgot already) and when I did I started getting spamed by applications saying the following text:
Code:
[insert application's name here].exe - Bad Image
 
C:\Windows\System32\fwpuclnt.dll is either not designed to run on  Windows or it contains an error. 
Try installing the program again using  the original installation media or contact your system administrator or  the software vendor for support.
At first I thought it was nothing until I tried using Chrome or Firefox and couldn't load any website and then came the other issues I can ping websites but not load them.... I also can't load "localhost" but I can load it via 127.0.0.1

I've never had an issue like this or even noticed that name before, I'm currently on a second OS (linux) so I can post this...


Does anyone know how to fix it or even what that does? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Are you able to System Restore your computer back to a date before the issue occurred?


If that fails and/or you cannot restore, then run SFC to check the integrity of all
Windows 7 system files:
  • Click on Start > Type in search cmd
    Right-click cmd after results are displayed and Run as Administrator
    Type SFC /scannow at the prompt
    (Note: There is a space between SFC and /scannow)

Note   Note
Select option two. If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and immediately
reboot the computer after each scan.


cheers

Alright I've tried the system restore (Kinda done that before I posted, but I tried the oldest one I had this time) It didn't fix it...

I also tried the SFC /Scannow thing (only did it the one time) and it came back with this:
Code:
2013-08-28 22:35:37, Info                  CSI    000001fd [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:48{24},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\SysWOW64"\[l:24{12}]"FWPUCLNT.DLL"; source file in store is also corrupted
So I thought I should update on that it also said something on the command propmt about finding errors but can not repair them I checked the log and the only thing I can find is the FWPUCLNT.DLL issue.

What should I do now? I don't have a install disk (My laptop came pre-installed, no backup disk or anything) and I also don't have any windows backups made.

Run the SFC scan 3 times as it may take 3 attempts to repair.

If not post back and I will ask another member to help with any corrupt files.

cheers

Hi,

Looking at the error, at the end of it you will see that the source file in store is also corrupt. This means that there isn't a suitable replacement file on the system, so it doesn't matter how many times you run SFC, there simply isn't anything it can replace the corrupt file with - so we have to fix this manually

Also I thought I'd point this out, not sure if you Copy and paste your steps and then edit them (I'm guessing you do) you have a minor typo in there on step 7.

Hi Loper,

Thank you for letting me know! When SFCFix was under development, it produced two logs however this has since been reduced to one and I amended my instructions to the new requirements however it looks like I left a stray s in there.

Your CBS log is showing no issues now so I'm hoping this problem is solved now. How is your computer performing now?
