Sorry, I've been busy and been away for a while....

My co-worker & I have essentially the same desktop computer. Would it be possible to replace my "RTL8187Se.sys" and/or "net8187se64.inf" files with a copy of these files from her computer?

Here's a snippet from my "sfcdetails.txt" file regarding the SFC issue for a refresher:
2014-09-03 14:43:36, Info CSI 0000033d [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:26{13}]"RTL8187Se.sys" of net8187se64.inf, Version = 6.1.7600.16385, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch
2014-09-03 14:43:36, Info CSI 0000033f [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:26{13}]"RTL8187Se.sys" of net8187se64.inf, Version = 6.1.7600.16385, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch
2014-09-03 14:43:36, Info CSI 00000340 [SR] This component was referenced by [l:190{95}]"Microsoft-Windows-Client-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7601.17514.INF_net8187se64"

Regarding my .dll issue, I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling a few of the affected programs, but to no avail. One of the problems is that I have approximately 16 of these .exe programs (that I know of so far) where I get the exact same system error message, "The program can't start because .DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." Another problem is that the error message never lists which .dll file is missing, so I assume that there must be several .dll files missing or something. What's odd is that the programs will still work, but I just have to click the 'OK' button each time the error message pops up until they stop, which can range from 6 - 20+ messages at a time. As you can expect, this becomes extremely annoying, especially when a program like "FlashPlayerPlugin_15_0_0_152.exe" is affected & the error message pops up all of the time while browsing Facebook, Youtube, or other websites that use flash, which apparently is a lot of websites.

I can try uninstalling & reinstalling each of the programs, but my fear is that after doing this for 14+ programs that it still doesn't resolve the issue because they're all looking for a file or several files that are being shared by all of them, located somewhere I don't know, like a systems folder or something. This is why I was hoping that the SFC and the Windows Recovery CD might help to resolve this issue. Any thoughts? Is there a way to figure out which .dll files these programs are searching for? Any programs that can help with this?

Thanks for any assistance.

Hey Arboc,

It appears that you need to uninstall and reinstall your network drivers.

Hello hackerbian, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Your SFC details log doesn't show any corrupted or modified system files found.

Hi Brink,

I tried it, but it still didn't fix it. I uninstalled the driver, which was for RTL8168E, rebooted, installed the driver for RTL8187SE, ran SFC /SCANNOW a few times, but I still got the same message that it couldn't repair a few files, so there was no change. However, I did have some issues with my computer lagging & with some network connections, so I installed the latest driver for RTL8186E, which appeared to resolve it. However, I'm still at the same place that I started at.

On a side note, my missing .DLL file issue appears to be a separate issue, so I guess I can let the SFC problem go, but I do need to fix this missing .DLL file issue because it really hampers my computer use.

Regarding my missing .DLL file issue, I found that the system error message pops up when my computer needs to run certain programs, which I believe need to use flash, java, or something. If I go to websites that use flash, like Facebook or Youtube, the error message will pop up for "FlashPlayerPlugin_15_0_0_152.exe" for every video that runs. I found that this was occurring when I'm browsing using Firefox. However, I tested this out using Internet Explorer and for some reason, I'm not getting the error messages. What gives? Is my problem related to Firefox?

As a refresher, the system error message I get is, "The program can't start because .DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." Unfortunately, it never states which .DLL file is missing.

Thanks for any insight!

The Flash Player pop-ups in your browser could just be spammy advertising/scam if you already have the latest Adobe Flash Player plug-in installed to the browser.

The problem is that I get the pop-ups when I'm not browsing as well. I'll get them when my computer is just booting up and tries to run "HPDesignjetUtility.exe". I'll get the message when I try running "QuickTimePlayer.exe", "realplay.exe", and also for "NVBackend.exe", which appears to be related to my NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT graphics card. I'll also get it when I open several programs that our office uses for structural engineering design & analysis. My only "uneducated" guess is that all of these programs use some form of flash or java technology and/or share DLL files or something. If I uninstall the above programs, like HP Designjet Utility, QuickTime Player, Flash Player, etc., then I don't get the messages for those specific programs, but I still get the messages for the other affected programs though, but as soon as I reinstall these programs, the messages return for them as well.

This issue all came about after my previous hard drive was going bad and we cloned it. However, I believe it was cloned along with some missing or corrupted sectors or with some system errors. I tried CHKDSK, SFC /SCANNOw, and the repair feature on both the Windows 7 Pro x64 installation & repair disks. I tried uninstalling & reinstalling some of the programs as I mentioned above. Nothing has fixed the issue. I also scanned my computer several times with CCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Kaspersky Small Office Security, but they didn't find anything.

In that case, you should go ahead and create a new thread for these separate issues to see what we can do to help.

scannow problems

Attached is the sfcdetails.txt file.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a Dell M6400 laptop.
This computer was shipped with Windows Vista Ultimate.
I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate some time ago.
Is there a way to fix these errors without having to reinstall windows?
Do I need to fix these errors?

For the most part, the computer seems to operate OK.
It seems to lock up a lot when going into sleep mode.
I have to press and hold the power button to get it to shutdown when that happens.
I have few AutoCAD programs that hang sometimes.

I use Charter F-Secure Business security software.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Cooper, and welcome to Seven Forums.

With that many corrupted system files, it may be best to see if doing a repair install may better help you.
