A huge thanks to tom982
who helped me out on this one :) Basically, your corruptions were not being fixed because of the way windows compresses files. To help save space, some of the files in the winsxs folder are compressed. However, on some systems, the files are not compressed. It depends on the exact configuration and hotfixes installed on the computer.
It seems that the files in my winsxs folder are compressed, and the ones in your folder are uncompressed. Hence when I replaced the files, I was giving you compressed ones, which SFC was not expecting, and therefore still producing errors that they were corrupt. I have now obtained the uncompressed versions from tom982, so here is the fix.
this fix is specific to the user in this thread. No one else should follow these instructions as it may cause more harm than good. If you are after assistance, please start a thread of your own.
