QuestionWhy are there 19863 subfolders in Windows/Winsxs/ ? Pin

I'm having trouble with my system and checked system files, only to find that the file wininet.dll in some unpronouncable folder is corrupted and couldn't be repaired.

So I went to find that folder location, starting with Windows/Winsxs, only to find thousands of subfolders! Many of them appear to contain system dlls, and apparently lots of different versions of the same dlls.

I could understand the need for keeping different versions of some system files - but 20K folders of files???

Is it normal to have so many? Or may that be another symptom, or even the cause of the problems I'm having? Could this be the work of a virus or other kind of malware? Or is that the result of Windows working 'normally' for a couple of years?
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
