Windows 7: sfc /scannow error: xpssvcs.dll

25 Mar 2015   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
sfc /scannow error: xpssvcs.dll


I ran sfc/ scannow and came up with an error result. Using the guide here SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I followed the tips/techniques and continued to get errors. Outputting the file showed that the error seems to be the xpssvcs.dll file. (I ran the sfc /scannow four time, then downloaded the W7/64 System Update Readiness Tool file, ran it, rebooted, re-ran sfc /scannow four times. Still got the errors.)

That txt output is attached.

Following the tutorial links led me to extracting the original xpssvcs.dll file from my W7/64 Home Premium disk. Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

I pulled the original xpssvcs.dll file onto my desktop, but never did successfully get it to copy into my Windows/system32 folder over the old dll file. (Yes, I successfully took ownership and granted full permissions to do so Take Ownership of file and, despite the successful ownership messages in the elevated command prompt, I could NOT copy or move the original dll from my desktop to overwrite the corrupt one in my Windows\System32 folder.)

My questions:

1.) Looking at my "sfcdetails.txt" file, is that xpssvcs.dll file the problem?

2.) Why can I not copy/move an original xpssvcs.dll file from my desktop into my Windows/System32 folder?

3.) What is another method to fix the error?

Thank you,
