Net Framework missing or blocked

In an efforts to enable an MVC IIS site to come up, someone suggested uninstall and reinstall of Net Framework. The removal of NET Framework causes Server Manager to disappear and control panel or "Turn Features On and Off" search in the settings to fail. I tried downloading a tool from Microsoft called NetFxRepairTool.exe which not only failed but told me it needs to send information to Microsoft because it cannot find the cause in the logs.
