Windows 7: Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

I wouldn't worry about it. They're not going to cause any issues, so there's no point in risking to delete the wrong file and cause an issue.

Hi shawn i still want to delete those GP files that youve seen on my CBS log, can you site all of them then i will manually delete them? The reason i want to delete those files is when i run SFC scan in the future and found corrupted files, i know that the default system files is corrupted.

Windows 8 Pro 64bit

Hey Brink/Shawn!

Just saying thanks for all your great tutorials, especially this one which has helped me out. (It work on Win. 8 )

I used the admin account to replace a corrupt "amd64_microsoft-windows-advancedtaskmanager" files. - Not sure if it was that or the security policy changes that I made prior which allowed copying the new files into the Windows\winsxs directory

Many thanks!

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
missing psd file

This is the first time I have used this forum, so I hope I am following the correct format.
My Windows 7 Home Premium is missing the systems restore function. I have run sfc /scannow and found two corrupt files (clusapi.dll and RacEngn.dll) both of which I have identified in the windows system 32 folder.
But a third corrupt file (Symphony.psd) I cannot find in there.
It is my intention to use this tutorial to replace all these file but I have not been able to because of the missing third one.
The attachment is a copy of the sfc /scannow report which may help to identify the problem.
These are great tutorial's, I found them following links from Google, and have used one in the past to help cure a previous problem on my Brothers computer.

Hello Rustydog, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have not already, you might see if doing what's in the blue Note box under step 4 in Option One if the SFC tutorial below may help in repairing these files.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps for now,

Hi Shawn.
Thanks for your rapid response to my query, I was not expecting such a quick reply, that's another big plus to go with the excellent tutorials.
I've only been able to carry out the first of your recommendations but without success, and am at the moment push for time to do any more.
Would like to continue this thread at a later date when I have carried out some more of your advice.
Best Regards Rustydog

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Hi Shawn
I'm picking up this thread to let you know my current situation.
I followed your advice and ran the sfc /scannow around nine time, it did not cure the problem but it's log indicated constantly, two corrupt system 32 files and one file I could not identify nor find out where it was stored.
These files were clusapi.dll, RacEngn.dll and Symphony.psd.
Working on the assumption that two corrupt systems file were more a hindrance than a help, I used the tutorial to extract from an installation DVD, copies of the corrupt files and copied them into the system 32 folder after having first taken over the ownership plus total control as administrator of the two corrupt system 32 files.
And got a O/K result.
The System Restore function is now fully operational and can be used by not only me but programs like Windows Up-Date etc.
I have return ownership and total control to TrustedInstaller as shown in a thread followed from this tutorial.
The only thing I have not be able to do is return the permissions of the administrator to the default.
Does this matter if the owner is TrustedInstaller or can the administrator inadvertently change anything because it has still got full control permissions.
Best Regards Rustydog
