Windows 7: "Server not found" problem on FF 39, Win 7

I have gone through the whole thread couple of times, and haven't seen anything regarding: do you have devices that work ok? or is this the only one that is connected?

Since it is not a hardware issue, it is bound to be fixable one way or another.

Please run cmd as admin:
Code:
sfc /scannow
If corruption is found also run in cmd:
Code:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
and attach the sfcdetails.txt here

OK, here is the chronology.
I ran cmd yesterday evening:
sfc /scannow
The corruption was found. It said that the repair will be completed on the next boot.
Today I turned on my PC expecting that finally everything will be OK. But, as you probably expect, it wasn't.
I could not connect to internet at all. There was an red X mark between "Network" and "Internet" in Network and Sharing Center.
(Note that when I had "usual" messages "Server not found" and "The connection has timed out" that red X mark wasn't there. The connection was OK then.)
I tried to troubleshoot it, but I only succeeded in getting this message. So, I switched from Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically to - Use the following IP address. I entered the usual numbers.
First I tried with these numbers in Preffered DNS Server and Alternate DNS Server fields > 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
Nothing happened.
Then I entered 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.
Nothing happened.

In order to connect to internet, I pulled out the cord from Marvell Yukon adapter and plugged it in Realtek PCI GBE. Now the connection is OK, but I don't know for how long.
Here is sfcdetails.txt

While I am at it, this is copied directly from the cmd screen after running sfc /scannow

(btw - Server not found message started to appear again)

Ok, there are a few corruptions that need to be taken care of.

Please follow Step 4 of Windows Update Posting Instructions. If CBS.zip exceeds the file limit, exclude the older CBSPersist files from the zip.

Once you attach the CBS.zip file, I will PM our expert on fixing these corruption.

I will upload compressed CBS folder (61 MB) in my Dropbox folder and send you a PM link to it.

Seven days passed, I still haven't received any PM. Perhaps he has forgotten about this...?
