For now, you might see if doing the items listed in the blue note box under step 4 in Option Two may be able to allow SFC to repair the file afterwards.
Hi and thanks!

I tried to install the Readiness tool previously but it almost reached the end and stopped..

Strangely, when I opened the Computer Management, it says that C Partion is healthy, I've no clue what's going on whatsoever :O

If you're not having any issues, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Otherwise, you may need to either do a repair install or reinstall Windows.

So far I've been playing games and running programs running yet smoothy but when I try to do the sfc /scannow it shows me the corrupt files, at first I was worried but I started to ask myself if this could this be a false-positive alarm or whatever? xD

Thanks in advance and I appreciate your attempt to help!

It's definitely a corrupted or modified system file that SFC cannot repair, but it's not a critical file that is normally used.

Okay Gang,

I need help badly! I'm at a total loss! My previous hard drive was going bad, so we had my hard drive cloned. However, I believe it was cloned, along with some system errors. It boots up, but I get a system error every time certain programs are ran.

I get the following message, "The program can't start because .DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

The problem is that it never lists which DLL file is missing. It must be a DLL file that is being shared or accessed in order to run the program because I get the same message for several different programs: HPDesignjetUtility.exe, JP2Launcher.exe, FlashPlayerPlugin_14_0_0_179.exe, QuickTimePlayer.exe, and several design analysis programs that I use for structural engineering purposes. The programs will eventually open up & run, but I have to click 'OK' between 6 & 25 times, especially if I'm browsing a website like Facebook. It's freaking annoying as you can understand!

I've done the following: CHKDSK, SFC /SCANNOW at the command prompt several times, SFC /SCANNOW at boot command prompt several times, SFC /SCANNOW using the system repair disk, SFC /SCANNOW using the installation disk for both Method One and Method Two (with DISKPART), per the suggestions noted in this thread & forum. I tried uninstalling & reinstalling some of the programs, but that didn't work. Unfortunately, I can't restore to a point prior to this issue. The one thing I haven't done is to replace the file(s) that SFC could not fix. It appears to be one file (I think) according to the CBS.log. I'm about an intermediate-level computer person, but I'm not sure how to replace the file and which file needs to be replaced.

I have included the sfcdetails.txt file. Any and all help is greatly appreciated because I'm going crazy with this and I haven't been very productive work-wise for several days now! Thank you!

Hello Arboc, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Your SFC details indicate that you need to reinstall your Realtek RTL8187S Wireless LAN PCIE Network Adapter driver since a few files for it are corrupted.

I don't think that will help with your other issue though. For that, reinstall any program that is giving that error to see if it may help.

Another option would be to do a system restore using a restore point dated before this started to undo and fix it.

Hi Brink,

Thank you for replying! When I opened up the RTL8187Se.sys file in Notepad, I wasn't sure if it was my Realtek Network Adapter or my Realtek HD Audio that it was associated with. Thank you for clarifying that it is indeed my network adapter. In any case, I had tried updating the driver for both of them just in case, but they both stated that I have the most current driver.

When I go to Device Manager and expand Network adapters, it lists Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. Is this the same as the Realtek RTL8187S Wireless LAN PCIE Network Adapter you mention? If so, should I uninstall the driver and reinstall it? What is the best way to install the driver? Should I get it from the Realtek website? I don't know which driver I need to download and install. I need you to hold my hand a little on this one.

Unfortunately, I can't do a system restore back that far. I don't know how, but for whatever reason, the feature to create a restore point had been turned off. I actually had to manually turn it back on. I discovered that it was turned off when I tried to do a system restore. Even though my hard drive was cloned, there are no records of any restore points beyond the time I manually turned it back on. It's strange & unfortunate.

Thanks for your help!

Yeah, that would be it. The best way would be to uninstall and reinstall the driver.

If you already have the driver installation file, then you could just install that same one.

Hi Brink,

I don't have the driver installation file. It was pre-installed.

I'm still confused as to which driver to install. According to the network adapter details, the Inf section property lists the value as RTL8168E.ndi, so it looks like my Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller is associated with RTL8168E instead of RTL8187SE. When I google "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller driver", the link to the Realtek website also lists RTL8168E, along with several others. If it is for RTL8168E, how do I uninstall the driver for RTL8187SE as well? Here's the link for RTL8168E: Realtek

Here's the link for RTL8187SE, which appears to be a stand-alone: Realtek

Which one do I download - RTL8168E, RTL8187SE, or both? Also, if it should be the one for RTL8168E, which version should I download - "Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program (SID:1669850)" or "8111DP DASH All-In-One installation kit for WinXP/Vista/Windows 7"? Or should I download both of them and install them both?

Sorry for all the rudimentary questions, but I just want to make sure I do this right & not create even more issues. Plus, it's the engineer in me to inquire. Thanks for the help!

Check in your Device Manager to see what it shows as the model number of your Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

If you are not sure, then what is the brand and model number of your motherboard or computer? I'll see if I may be able to find the latest driver for it.
