Windows 7: Replace Corrupt MUI

Replace Corrupt MUI

In the case of sfc /scannow CBS.log showing there are corrupt files and the MUI is also corrupt, where do we get hold of clean MUIs and where do we put them when we've found them? I've tried searching on my Win 7 dvd with no luck. It would obviously be preferable to replace the corrupt MUI rather than just the dll or exe, in case corruption happens again.
I was under the impression that sfc /scannow would scan the dvd if it couldn't find a clean MUI and replace from there, but maybe not?

Hello Sluice,

You can use Option Three in the tutorial below to make it easier to find and see only the SFC results in a created sfcdetails.txt file.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Once you have the location of the MUI from the sfcdetails.txt file, the tutorial below can help show you how to find the MUI file at the same location on the Windows 7 installation DVD or ISO.
