Ahhh, good clue, see if those files exist in the c:\windows\SysWOW64 folder as well. It's looking like the dll files could be corrupted, if indeed they are in place. If you do find them, at this time I'd suggest running the System Files Checker. I could not explain better than our own Brink

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Fantastic, I don't like to jump straight to SFC, but it does fix many file issues. Glad you got it sorted, and we both learned something :)
