I got the way
                  On a pc
first go to control panel> add remove programs> remove iTunes> remove quick time> remove apple software update

then go to

www.apple.com
click >downloads > iTunes > download > run

then run installation and you'll have all three back make sure it's 9 some times this happens with not uptodate iTunes

cheers hope this works

( u can allways call 1-800-my-apple they will help u out allot with this stuff ps don't tell them your jb)

Unplug your phone, hold home button whilst you plug your phone in itunes should pop up.
then just hold power and home til your phone turns on

I thought about restoring it but I'm scared that if I put in to DFU  mode the computer will still not recognize my iPhone then I would be screwed

Go through windows and delete the drivers that your iphone uses
The iphone is not a phone its a computer!
