I downloaded Sysinternals Autoruns. There are so many bloody files with no help which one to run. I was going through one by one and I noticed after repeating the process the following files have become missing which I verified to be the case by going into their respective directories: wow64cpu, wowarmhw, wow64, xtajit, and wow64win on KnownDlls

How do I get these files back?

Attached is a screenshot:

Autoruns does not delete anything. All autoruns does is identify software components and drivers configured to run when a device is booted, or a user logs into their account, but you have to know what you are disabling. If you have missing components, run autoruns as admin and check everything.

Thanks. It appears the above files are missing on many laptops. I always run files as Admin (right click, Run as Admin).
