Default Where'd MSpaint go?

somehow mspaint was removed from my computer and I used it often to make quick changes to images and create simple diagrams. I searched the web and was surprised not to find anywhere to download it...anybody know?

If you can't find it, try clicking Start>>Run and type in MSPAINT...and if that fails, try navigating here (saying you have a SP installed)

C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\

and copy the mspaint.exe file to the following directory...

C:\WINDOWS\System32\

Then make a shortcut if you wish..

OK,

http://www.jonmega.com/iceman/sysfiles/download_SP1.php

go there, click the download link, that zip file has a number of windows files, including mspaint.exe....just copy mspaint.exe into C:\WINDOWS\System32 and you should be good to go...

Go to Add/Remove programs. To your left, select add/remove windows componets and reinstall Paint.
