MS-Paint missing

Hi all,
Today i wanted to use Print Screen for something, but i found out that when i went to start--programs--accessories - there was no paint there. i just used it yesterday! i searched my Windows dir, searched through start--search - not found the paint. i tried reinstalling it through the add-remove in the control panel, but it asks me for the XP CD, and i don't have it - it's my school's - and i'm on vacation! is there any way to download\get ms-paint again?

maybe you can ask a friend over MSN or ICQ or something to send you the paint.exe file (make sure the friend also has XP installerd)

That's what I was thinking php-webdesign, but it seems the original mspaint.exe is 332 kb so 88 kb is too small.
