Sfc/Scannow cannot repair corrupt .inf and .nlp files

I have run sfc/scannow in win 7, and have followed instructions to run sfc at boot in command prompt, but nothing has solved the errors. i have saved the file sfcdetails.txt to desktop, and have extracted only the problematic parts and saved it in another file problems.txt
kindly check the file, as i have attached it here.

all the files are either .inf or with .nlp extensions.
windows is running fine. but i want to get rid of the problems before they become a serious issue. I have a pre-installed OEM version of win 7 basic, and i have a HP G6-1117TX laptop. There is a drive named "System", which is the active and boot-able partition, and is not the same drive where windows is installed. Plz help....

OK it didn't help, but still thanx for it . anyway, i found that only 1 .nlp file was missing. it is big5.nlp

C:\Windows\Assembly\GAC_32\mscorlib\2.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089\big5.nlp
C:\Windows\Assembly\GAC_64\mscorlib\2.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089\big5.nlp

these are the locations. so if anyone has these two big5.nlp files kindly upload them for me..

big.nlp file is asscociated with the .net framework, and in this case .net 2 sever pack 2. i ran a .net verification tool and it found these errors, contained in the attached file.

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\sbscmp20_mscorlib.dll
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\WPF\wpftxt_v0400.dll
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\WPF\WPFFontCache_v0400.exe
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\WPF\wpftxt_v0400.dll

ok these are 3 .dll files and 1 .exe file that i need too, and the above are the locations. and mind you the version of .net framework is 4.030319

also there are 7 .inf files missing which are:
msmouse.inf, msclmd.inf, msports.inf, mtconfig.inf, mstape.inf, mpio.inf, msdv.inf

so if anyone has all or either of these files, plz upload. I'll be greatly indebted.

I'm at school right now and can't send any individual files, but as a thought, how about uninstalling and then reinstalling the .Net framework?

If that doesn't help and you're still stuck I will check back when I get home later tonight.

Hello Profdlp,
Yes I have already done it..but still no luck... also i could only uninstall and re-install the .net framework 4
as .net 2.0 sp2, .net 3.0 sp2, and .net 3.5 sp1 are windows components( or features) which can only be turned off or on....they are not in the installed programs menu. Ok, if u can kindly try, then that would be hugely helpful to me.

But i am not so sure about the .inf file locations, as if I search anyone of these, say msmouse.inf, then i get many locations and files, and I'm rather confused, where to put it( when i get a good copy from someone). In other words I'm not sure which among all these msmouse.inf files is corrupted and so which one to replace..? I'm attaching a snapshot, kindly check, and when u get time please check the problems.txt file i attached earlier.
