    It seems to me Microsoft knew the store was subject to corruption, hence SFC & DISM.

    The ONLY entity that *needs* anything other than read/execute privileges to anything in the winsxs folder is TrustedInstaller - therefore anything else should not be allowed any other access.
    It really is that simple.

    @NoelDP: I checked the security settings privileges of that file before using the DISM command and it clearly showed that SYSTEM had more priviliges than only read/execute (just like the rest of the DPB files in the folder). That's why I just wanted to mention this and was wondering if there could be any problems because of this when future updates (i.e. windows 8.2?) would come out that needs the SYSTEM to modify or renew files.

    It's TrustedInstaller that does the work of installing updates, not SYSTEM - that's why System doesn't need anything other than read/execute privileges.

    I thought Windows Modules Installer was responsible.

    Windows Modules Installer *is* TrustedInstaller - by another name
    TrustedInstaller is the executable and also the service name in Windows 6.x
