Excuse me, a more detailed path.
click on start and select "Control Panel"
In control panel select "Programs and Features"
In Programs and Features select "Turn Windows Features On or Off"
Expand "Print and Document Services"
Remove the check mark by "Windows Fax and Scan"
Click OK (Windows will now remove the Fax and Scan feature)
If the OS doesn't ask for a reboot, Go ahead and reboot.
After the reboot follow the above path only this time put a check mark by "Windows Fax and Scan". Click OK. This will reinstall the feature. Reboot.
