How do I reinstall Microsoft Works without a disc?

In the last few weeks I have been using Microsoft Works Calendar without any problems.  Last night when I attempted to add more information to the calendar I got a Yellow Triangle with a !   The notice says "Works cannot access 1 or more files, it needs to run the Calendar.   The files may have been renamed, deleted or moved."  Try reinstalling Works, and then starting the program again.   I bought the computer new.  It is a Compaq HP with Windows XP.  How do I reinstall Microsoft Works when it was already loaded in the computer & I have no program disc that came with it?  I am computer literate in getting around the computer but NOT in the upkeep of it or the problem solving - like I'm faced with now.  I would greatly appreciate your help.  Thanks in advance for your time & assistance.

Try the Recovery Manager in the Programs menu.

Thank you for your quick reply.  I have been searching my system for the Recovery Program and cannot locate it.  Maybe I'm just over-looking it?  Thank you for your reply.
