Thanks a million. The link provided the solution to the problem. It is caused by an invalid page fault in module Mfc42.dll. The methodology involves firstly removing the accessories in your Add/Remove settings, and then deleting the following registry keys: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Current Version\Applets\Paint B:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Current\Version\Applets\Wordpad. Everything returns in pristine condition.Just for posterity this was the original error message  "Mspaint has caused
an error in MFC42.DLL. Mspaint will now close."Thanks once again for your assistance.
