Windows 7: sfc: "Cannot verify component files for" ... "manifest is damaged"

sfc: "Cannot verify component files for" ... "manifest is damaged"

Thanks to other helpful threads on these forums, I have worked through some maintenance that seems to have resolved the constant BSODs I was having, in large part via sfc /scannow.

I believe I only have one issue remaining as far as sfc is concerned:
Code:
Cannot verify component files for Microsoft-Windows-RPC-HTTP.Resources, Version = 6.1.7601.17514, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture = [l:10{5}]"en-US", VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral, manifest is damaged (TRUE)
If I understand what I've read in other posts correctly, sfc is telling me that it cannot verify "C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-rpc-http.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_en-us_b143921936942d2a\rpchttp.dll.mui" because manifest is damaged.

I think this is the manifest: "C:\Windows\winsxs\Manifests\amd64_microsoft-windows-rpc-http.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_en-us_b143921936942d2a.manifest" and the file is zero length, so it makes sense that sfc cannot use it to verify the file.

In the interest of completeness, there really is a corresponding system file installed at "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\rpchttp.dll.mui".

It doesn't seem like doing a repair install is worth it for this one file - I'm not having BSODs anymore, but it would be nice if sfc could complete a clean run, so I have tried to pursue the approach of finding the original source file and manifest. Even though it appears to be a SP1 file based on the info, the first thing I checked was my install disc (by exploring the appropriate .wim file), but rpchttp.dll.mui doesn't seem to be present. Then I downloaded the .iso for Windows 7 SP1 and it does not include "rpchttp.dll.mui" (to check this I mounted the .iso, extracted the X64 content with -x on the exe, opened the cab in 7zip). Since I couldn't find it there, I searched on technet to try to find if "rpchttp.dll.mui" came via Windows Update, but I couldn't find this file listed in any of the "affected files" lists there, either.

So now I am wondering where it came from? Anyone have any ideas on how figure this out and get it resolved, short of doing a repair install? Thanks for reading!
