Windows 7: SFC SCANNOW cannot repair file - running SFC from win rec envnmnt

SFC SCANNOW cannot repair file - running SFC from win rec envnmnt

I have a corrupt AudiSes.dll in Windows/System32 which I wish to replace as part of the process of clearing up a number of problems on my Win 7 installation.

I would appreciate someone to verify that I will be using the correct command from the WRE - I will boot the WRE from CD drive D and be working on Win 7 installed on drive C

sfc /scanfile=c:\windows\system32\AudioSes.dll /offbootdir=c:\/offwindir=c:\windows

this is supposed to repair the corruption

Thanks in advance

That should work although you may need to change drive letters because sometimes the same drive letters aren't used from outside of the operating system.

Alternatively, you can scan the whole file system and replace corrupt files with the link below

Many thanks will try tomorrow
Tomorrow arrived - ran procedure 3 times from WRE and it was unable to repair corrupted file - is there a way to force replacement of this one file named AudioSes.dll ?
( I am attempting to clear up a number off issues without doing a win 7 reinstall -the system is 90% operational but has a couple of problems with things like WMP libraries and Plex)
