Find missing drivers windows 7

Using w7 home premium 64bit I have

windows\system32\drivers\npfs.sys

I am missing

windows\system32\drivers\npf.sys

I am getting literally thousands of the following error messages continuously in my boot log.

"Did not load driver \SystemRoot\SysWow64\drivers\NPF.sys"

npf.sys also does not appear in \syswow64\drivers at all

  1. If you are missing all those files then you need to install Windows again or you have a pirated copy of Windows and all the files were not copied onto it.
  2. I solved this problem by installing winpcap software. This software contains the NPF.sys driver. This solves the problem. I could not find out if NPF.sys was a Windows 7 default driver. It was never on my system and it was not loaded from counterfeit software unless Tigerdirect is now selling counterfeit software. I had previously posed this same question on several other forums and was given basically the same answer everywhere. So I still do not know if NPF.sys is installed on other versions of windows 7 software and just not on w7home premium OEM.
