    Go to the control panel > windows update, on the left side in the corner up can you find 'check for updates'.
    Click on it and you force to check for an update.

    If you don't have a cd or can get a cd I don't think this issue can be fixed.

    Ask your manufacturer for a cd of your OS?

    Contact your manufacturer, explain the problem, ask for a cd for your Operating System.
