Windows 7 \Windows\System32\inetcpl.cpl

All of a sudden I am getting error messages while surfing the Internet about the \Windows\System32\inetcpl.cpl file.
I read discussions to do a chkdsk /r /f and a scandsk from the CMD as Admin in Safe Mode. I did a complete scan with MalwareBytes(it was clean), and even copied the inetcpl.cpl file from my laptop to the desktop and dropped it in the directory. I am still getting this error ! Also I cannot get my "Internet Options" to work from the Control Panel. This locked too. Any ideas.

For those of you who may have wondered, I tried all the advice for CMD chkdsk /r /f., candsk and MatwareBtyes. The problem still existed. I remembered that last time that I got an "Update" from MS, and thought that that was the problem.... well it was MS automatically downloaded I.E (11) and that screwed up the Internet Options on the Control Panel, and the inetcpl.cpl in the Windows\System32 .... case closed for now ... don't download I.E. (11) if you have Windows 7, it is probably for Windows 8 which I will never get if I don't have to !!!

Think about that.

A gazillion w7 users have loaded IE 11.

If this update did Bork the control panel the and elsewhere....would be on fire.

I suspect something else is amiss.

You can check for corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above doesn't help. Click START, then type CMD in the search box, right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator. Then from the command prompt type sfc /scannow.
Good luck.

Thanks folks, I don't care about I.E. 11 and I did the scannow, all I know is that I fixed and things are good.
