    Windows stuck on please wait

    Hello folks!
    I need help. Coming to point, I was facing some error related to dll (aom 0x00007b error) launching Age of Mythology. I came to know it can be fixed by copying 5 dll files to system32 folder. These files are associated with visual C++ redist.
    mfc100.dll, mfc100u.dll, msvcr100.dll, msvcp100.dll and msvcr100_clr0400.dll

    First 2 file were copied and rest 3 were giving permission error. So I renamed the 3 files and pasted them. Problem is I dont remember the names coz i just deleted 1-2 letter from name.
    After restarting system it is stuck on please wait screen.

    Somehow I am able to boot in safe mode and system boots in safe mode without problem.
    Please help me. How can I fix this?
    I don't want to refresh or format.

    When in safe mode perhaps you can rename the files back to what they should be. Here is a screenshot of my System32 files for comparison:

    From Safe Mode, you can do a System Restore to a date before you renamed them if you have System Restore enabled.

    System restore was not enabled.
    I will check the dll as per screenshot and revert. Thanks
