Are you referring to Snipping tool?
If so it should reside here:
%windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe
You may need to create  shortcut.

Try clicking on Start>All Programs>Accessories> Snipping Tool. This is what the above expert recommended.

You can also just use your "Prnt Scrn" keyboard button to take a screenshot and then open Paint and paste the screenshot without having to use the snipping tool.

The Snipping tool is very convenient though because it will allow you to draw a box around what you want a screenshot taken of, I use it all the time.
