Tom,

Here's a link that should get your mspaint issue resolved.

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q218/6/32.asp

It basically involves removing mspaint, removing a registry entry and rebooting, then installing mspaint again.

Hope this gets it going for you.

hi
go to programs,acessories,system tools,system information tools registry checker If any of the files have been corrupted or changed this should tell you have your win disk handy in case it tells you to reload the file that is corrupted
