If you are on steam go into "properties" and find the button that says "verify game cache" It will find anything corrupted or missing and replace them with vanilla versions. If you are on disc you will need to reinstall the entire game.

Always keep a backup copy of GTA5.exe, GTAVLauncher.exe and update.rpf for the eventuality of R* updating the game and preventing you from playing LSPDFR. So if your exe file disappears again, you can copy the file from the backup folder.

can someone post a copy it won't come back after the reinstall

No, that'd be the same as piracy. If you own the gamelicense you already have the file.

Can you show a screenshot of your GTA V directory, as it look right now after reinstall?

It probably wouldn't help you. I know someone (totally not talking about me) who tried to use someone elses GTA5.exe and it didn't work. When you try to launch the game it would ask you to write the game key. After you write your game key it will then say it's already been used by someone else. So somehow the game key is automatically linked to the GTA5.exe file that is created when you install the game. That is the case for the Steam version, I don't know if it's the same for the retail version.

Not having the exe file even after the install, I'm starting to suspect that your antivirus might think it's a malicious file and delete it as soon as it's created. Why did it start doing that all of a sudden, I have no idea. But you should check if the file is not quarantined, go to Control Panel ->Windows Defender-> History.
