Pages still missing....

well I have seen that the problem of missing pages had already been discussed here, so I thought it will be ok for my downloaded file. But as I went though it today morning, I found the missing pages are not yet added in, and pp.173-188 are also strangely disappeared...
can anyone help correcting it?
