A repair install

It's often a method used near the end of the line, but more times than not it does help where SFC won't. And basically only resets a few system settings back to default here and there.
With very little information given by you as to what exactly is missing, how it might have come to that point, it's a little more difficult to give an exacting answer.
You won't find much help here with an attitude like that. And rudeness is not tolerated here.
