    I suggest you try the mentioned sfc.exe method before you make things worse by putting files from random places on the Internet into WinSxS.

    This! And if that doesn’t work: restore a system image if you have one, or use a restore point that predates your problem or lastly do a repair install. Of course you can always wipe the drive and reinstall the OS but that seems pretty extreme to some people.
