Look at the basic for fixing most things in windows updates here http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-windows_update/windows-update-components-must-be-repaired/213206a4-4d36-4d64-b424-13afa6137fac

 

if those don't fix it..  open the   Command Prompt (admin) and copy/paste in ;

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

   this is the recommended fix usually for that.   Takes several minutes to complete a slow scan.
