sfc_os.dll error

Hello everyone, i have this annoying sfc_os.dll is missing error and cant seem to fix it. Everytime i open i program an error pops up and says sfc_os.dll is missing, i have some screenshots below.



In this example, i opened up Guild Wars. After i click ok, this what i get...



After i click ok again, the game opens fine, it does this for pretty much everything. I've already ran sfc /scannow in cmd..and it cant repair the file. can anyone help me?

Im running Windows 7 Ultimate. O btw it would be helpful if anyone could provide me with a copy of there sfc_os.dll (Windows 7-u version)

thanks

It may be that the reg key for that dll is broken. Try this:

thanks for the help seekermeister, Bare Foot Kid and severedsolo. i dont wanna bother goin through all the trouble with repairing it. i know distributing system files isnt allowed but, can someone upload the file to like mediafire or somethin then pm me the link? is that acceptable? cause all i need is the file and itll pretty much work (i think)

thanks

Hello Fluffy,

I do not have a Windows 7 U version, but the tutorial below will help show you how to extract this file from your Windows 7 installation disc. You may need to take ownership and "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the file in your current installation before you will be allowed to replace it with the extacted copy.

Hope this helps,
