Thanks for sharing your problem with us, you can use command prompt to solve your problem. To solve your problem using command prompt just follow the following steps:
1. If you are using windows 7 then press window button + R run window will open type cmd.
2. In the command prompt window just type "sfc /scannow" without quotes. "sf/scannow" command will scan your computer and it will replace damaged version with correct version.
