Windows 7: How to replace corrupted system files

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
How to replace corrupted system files


I am running windows 7 home premium 32 bit on a Toshiba Satellite model 1115D-S1125. Windows 7 came installed on the computer and has been running well until 2 weeks ago when I got a corrupted file, please run check disc utility message. I have run both check disk utility and the system file checker and have 3 corrupted system files, autochk.exe, msscntrs.dll, and msdtcprx.dll that windows could not replace or repair. Since my computer came with windows installed, I don't have a start-up or installation disc, so my question is, where can I get uncorrupted copies of these files and how do I replace the corrupted ones?

I am trying to avoid having to uninstall/reinstall windows. I have also made a recovery image using Toshiba Recovery Media Creator, but I wasn't able to figure out where the files would be in the recovery files.

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated,

Hello kldosch, welcome to Seven Forums!

Have a go at running the sfc /scan from boot / at PC startup, it may take running the boot/scan several times to completely repair the files so repeat the complete process to see if it helps, have a look at this tutorial at the link below.

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

You can use one of the methods listed in this tutorial to create a Windows boot disk.
