Repairing a Program

Using Control Panel

In Control Panel, click Programs.
Then click on "Programs and Features".
Now you should see a list of all desktop programs installed on your computer. Scroll through the list and select the program you want to repair. If this feature is available to the program (not supported by all programs), the Repair button appears at the top of the list. Click this button.
