Windows 7: I have a silly question - re : sfc and system restore

I have a silly question - re : sfc and system restore

Yesterday I did a sfc and it found and repaired corrupt files.

If I am to do a system restore to 5 days ago, will the corrupt files that had been repaired return ?

Editing ... Reason of the question is that : I have Windows Mail installed in my Win 7 about 2 weeks ago. It was working until today. I clicked on the shortcut, clicked Open... nothing.

I did a system restore to a few days ago, and WM is back in action.

I wonder if the " corrupt files " which sfc found are related to WM installation.
I prefer not to run sfc in order to find out. Hence my question.

I don't think that is a silly question at all.

System Restore restores the registry, but it doesn't give you a new Windows installation.

I'm tempted to say yes, the corrupted files will return--if they existed when you made the restore point 5 days ago, but I'd be interested to hear the fine points and nuances of this myself.

Update ......
After I had WM back in action ( my default is WLM, by the way ), I went ahead and did a sfc.
Sfc reports corrupt files found and successfully repaired them. Same as last time I did sfc.

And yes, WM does not respond anymore.
So, it has to be related to the " corrupt files " that sfc repaired.

Advice needed .....
Should I do system restore again to revive WM, or say goodbye to WM ?
I don't have to have WM.

I am trying to forget about my experience with Windows Mail. Why would you even consider keeping it around if, as you say, you don't have to have it???

I keep WM solely because there are times people ask questions about WM in the other Vista forums, I use it to double-check if I've given correct procedures to the OPs.

WM and WLM 2011 have very different procedures to access various options.

This is my " speculation " as to why my WM stops working once sfc has repaired the " corrupt files ".

In installing the WM, I had to replace the existing mose.dll from the Windows Mail folder with a 64-bit mose.dll that I had downloaded from the tutorial ( Windows Mail )

sfc , upon repairing, must had replaced my new 64-bit mose.dll with the original one. That renders WM unresponsive afterwards.

This speculation may sound silly, but answers from experts in Mail or Programs would be appreciated.

Good morning internet friends, I know this may be a silly question, but I'm going to ask anyway. I have Magicjack, and it leaves me messages in the form of .wav files in emails. These are then downloaded. They go directly to Windows7 download folder. Because this same folder gets all .tmp files,...

A Silly Question.
Well, my question is if in Windows 7, DirectX and video codecs have to be installed by the user just as in Windows XP, because as far as I can see, some movies can be seen, and I haven't tried games yet. Thanks :)
