After downloanding Sp. 3, I ran sfc /scannow; After scanning, I checked in system files in event viewer and it had a lot of missing files that did not make it to the dll cache. All of which were mainly language files. I just want to know if I should go ahead and download them from dll.download or leave alone. Thank you.

If you are not experiencing any errors, then I would not suggest that you try to replace the files. Even if the files available have the same name, you can't be sure that they are the same or the correct version (files may be updated for each Service Pack).

I would like to see the errors in your event log , if you don't mind of course.
  • Please download dumpel.exe by Microsoft and save it to your desktop.
  • Copy the following into a notepad. Do not copy the word "Code".
    ECHO Please wait.
    ECHO Logs Dumped at Date:%date% Time:%time%>EventLogDump.txt
    dumpel -l system -c -format tdTISus >systemlogdumptemp.txt
    find /v ",4," systemlogdumptemp.txt>>EventLogDump.txt
    del systemlogdumptemp.txt
    dumpel -l application -c -format tdTISus>applogdumptemp.txt
    find /v ",4," applogdumptemp.txt>>EventLogDump.txt
    del applogdumptemp.txt
    del dumpel.exe
    start EventLogDump.txt
    del %0
  • Click File, then Save As... .
  • Click Desktop on the left.
  • Under the Save as type dropdown, select All Files.
  • In the box File Name, input logdump.bat.
  • Hit OK.
Double click logdump.bat. The script should take only a moment to run. When it is finished, a text file named EventLogDump.txt (saved on your desktop) will open.

Please reply back with EventLogDump.txt attached or copied into your post.

With Regards,
