All my winSxS folders are in a windows folder in a file under a folder called Syst79761AE4.   




Now, there are two windows folders on my computer: the regular one containing all the windows files, except for winSxS files which are stored in a different windows folder under Syst79761AE4, instead of just under the regular hard drive C.  My antivirus program (BitDefender) also cannot scan the winSxS files, and says the objects were not found after the scan has been completed.
