    Don't know how you did the removal, but it looks like you may have removed critical system files as well.

    Need to open an elevated command window as follows:
    1) enter "cmd" in start area
    2) press cntl-shift-enter

    This will open a command windows which shoud say Administrator at the top left

    Enter the command "sfc /scannow"

    This will look for missing or damaged system files and attempt to restore or replace them.
