missing windows fax and scan program

Is their anyway I can retrieve this program I may have inadvertently deleted this program or it may have never been installed on my compputer in the first place. Any help with getting this program would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Do as Qdos suggests. If It is already tic'd untic it and then after the removal tic it back in.
