Problem of a Purchaser of Windows 8 Thru Download

Hi. 

I bought Windows 8 as a download on the very day it was launched in India last year. Naturally I have neither any CD nor any other copy of the original installation files with me.

Now, since the system is running very slow, I tried to use the facility of "Refresh your PC without affecting your files", which is available as an option under "Change PC Settings". It told me that some files are missing, and asked me to supply the same. But I have no CD. 

What should I do?

Thanks.
