Avast prompted me to and like a fool I followed the recommended action.

Tried sfc /scannow... got the following message.

"Another servicing or repair operation is currently running. Wait for this to finish and run sfc again."

I also noticed that Windows Modules Installer is not listed under services.

Strange. maybe you could reboot, and try it again.

Can you do a system restore to before you deleted it?

Tried rebooting, tried safe mode... same message.

Unfortunately, before I realized I had a problem... I deleted my restore points.

This is from Win 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. Not sure if that matters. (Except probably the 64-Bit part.) I'd use it only as a last resort if the SFC gets you nowhere.

Use at your own risk!

If that does not work, you can try a repair install. Check these two threads:

Cab Files

Isn't there a convention to extract files from the cabs on the install disk. It used to run in a dos box (probably elevated)?

There is a way but its a bit convoluted compared to XP. There's a tutorial here:- Extract Files from Windows 7 installation DVD. You'll need to download 7-zip though.

Thanks guys for the suggestions. Copied the trustedinstaller.exe profdlp uploaded to the servicing folder and everything seems to be working fine. Ran sfc and did not find any integrity violations. So big thanks to profdlp for the upload and everyone else for their input!!

Best Regards,

There is no need to go though that. Every single file the system needs is already extracted to C:\Windows\Winsxs
