Is the executable devicedisplayobjectprovider.exe located on the win7 install disk? I think I accidently deleted it after I got it quarantined in an anti-malware app. Where can I copy or download it from?
Now the devices and printers window does not appear when I click on it.

Hi -

What anti-malware app quarantined it?

Two options at this time:
  1. Run SFC - https://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833
  2. Manually attempt to copy it from \WinSxS to \system32
Try #1 first.

For #2 - bring up an Admin CMD prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe under "Programs" | select "Run as Administrator" | Paste -
Code:
copy C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-fdddo_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_b0de2afe4ca7a1e2\DeviceDisplayObjectProvider.exe c:\windows\system32
\WinSxS contains an exact copy of the one that should be in \system32.

From my Windows 7 SP1 system:
Code:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

C:\Windows\System32>dir DeviceDisplayObjectProvider.exe

Here is that command for easier viewing -

The part in RED is a sub-folder of \WinSxS.

Copy/paste it from the CODE box into Admin CMD screen - not from the QUOTE box!

Thanks. I copied it over and everything is ok now.

It was threatfire (pctools). I carelessly deleted the exe before checking whether it was a windows file.
