Windows 8.1, 64 BIT OS
About a year ago I noticed in Autoruns that my WOW dll's were missing. Also, some of the software I've downloaded doesn't run, I get some kind of incompatibility message, I forget exactly. Previously one of those downloads HAD run, so I'm confident these missing "WOW's" have something to do with it. I putz a lot and probable had malware at one time. My system is clean now, I just ran 5 anti-malware and nothing now.
Anyway, I'm finding tons of WOW files in Windows and I have no idea how to fix this. I've googled but there's no "Repair Your WOW Files For Dummies" as far as I can see. If anyone knows how to help a 'C" student fix this, please do. I'm going to attach a JPEG of some of these wow files, though I doubt it has any value.
P.s. Would a "System Refresh" fix this? If it didn't cause such a muddling mess I'd just try it, so I'd like to know if it will work first. I can't do a restore, it's been too long, and a system recovery would be torture.
