Corrupted files. I don't believe you will be able to recover that. Time for a reinstall of windows.

Before reinstalling/formatting windows try REPAIR first during installation of the OS so that you will not lose your windows settings and other installed programs.

Not certain on this myself but I did manage to find this, which seems to be worth a look through, specifically the last post.

You shouldn't need to completely re-install for one missing/corrupt file. You should be able to replace the file using either the recovery console or by performing a repair install as venjhammet suggested. Good luck!
