Re-Install the 'wuauserv' Service

I have a Dell Inspirion laptop with WIndows Xp on it. Some time ago, a virus came into contact with my system, destroying some vital files. One of those files was the wuauserv service (Windows Update Service). I can no longer see this service in my overall list of Services, nor is its registry key in the registry. Is there a way to put this service back on my system. Trying to avoid having to format or reboot or re install the OS.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
