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)

what if you rename the .exe.mui to just .exe and try running it?

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