Win 7 64bit. Just noticed nbtstat has gone. 'Everything' shows its name in windows/system32 but no size or date and dbl clicking produces a 'file not there' response. Tried finding it in a backup of 18 Sep and not there, either. Not in Recycle Bin.

Scanned with MBAM - nothing found.

sfc /scannow found nothing to fix.

Can't find any answers by googling so am really puzzled as to how it went AWOL and how I get it back again.

Any ideas??

Dont know if this will work or not, But I have uploaded a copy from my W7 HomePre 64, maybe you can grab it and dump it in the sys32 folder - Grab it here (http://www.box.net/shared/9r8a6bkmb8) - it shows as only 18KB on my system. (real huge) :lol:

Good luck :D

Thanks a lot, WT, for taking the trouble for me. I just found another C: backup of 10 Sep and it was in that. Yes, only 18K. The mystery is how on earth it got deleted. System32 is not the area one goes poking around in to save 18K of space!! But I will never know the answer to that question.

Thanks, again.

Fair enough comment.

Heaven forbid if anyone in the world were to actually put a complete OS or other programs, Music or Movies for downloading -- now we all know no one would do any such thing. :eek:

While in police mode, you better warn This web site (http://www.4shared.com/file/60638176/64386315/nbtstat.html) and This place (http://www.corruptedfilerepair.com/File-Information/nbtstat.exe-Microsoft-Windows-Operating-System-Microsoft-Corporation.asp), as well as god knows how many others ;)
