Ok, that is something that is on your side. I cannot say anything
bout that, but you see that is has to do with permissions, as I 
conjured up from my non-existing crystal ball.

All really bad.

Please try (cmd line)
	tlmgr remove --force texworks
then check if bin/win32/texworks.exe is gone
also check that all of tlpkg/texworks directory is gone

Then run
	tlmgr install texworks
