Missing modules/*.DLLs

Hi group, first posting:
XP home SP2 standalone HP Pavilion a317x

Over time, I've lost entire service modules (application management for
one) and I can no longer activate the important IPSEC service.
I try to start the service manually and get *error 1747- the
authentication service is unknown*

When I run IPSEC.SYS in the Depends.exe support tool analyzer, I see
I'm missing these security-related .DLLs:
efsadu.dll
kdcsvc.dll
ntdsa.dll

I've been unable to find these files anywhere in C: or D:, neither are
they in the SP2 cd I received from MS (free for the asking) nor in the
10 disc recovery discs I received after a total trojan-caused crash
last year (HP does NOT supply any backup discs of home-XP, drat them!
:).
I'm now at a loss as to how to re-activate this seemingly critical
internet security service w/o going through the hair-pulling act of
another clean install or system recovery.
any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
frank

If you had a retail version of xp,you could open cmd,install xp cd,exit the
info
page,then type:Sfc /Scannow All windows files would get reinstalled if
corrupt
or missing...But one needs the cd.

Bummer.....but something to keep in mind for the future, Andrew, and
thanks for that; maybe that's exactly what some lurker out there was
looking for.
In the meantime; do you or anyone else out there know how to use what I
-do- have at my disposal, as noted below, to scan all the CAB files'
contents without having to download megs and megs of them, leaving them
on the various discs I have?
Surely those DLLs, or entire modules are packed away on those CDs; I
just don't know a relatively quick and efficient way of surveying them
without going blind or wearing callouses onto my fingertips :P
thanks for the reply Andrew.
Cheers:
Frank
