    Have you tried an uninstall and reinstall? (Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows components and find and uncheck paint. Ok/Next, next, etc.) Then go back and go through the same way and check paint. Does this help?

    Did you look under Accessories and Utilites > Accessories > Paint? (In Add/Remove Windows components)

    It must be there somewhere
    have you tried doing a programme search?
    click on start
    click on search
    click on all files and folders
    type in Microsoft paint
    All or part of the file name
    press search.
    the programme should appear then just run it from the
    file when it appears.

    Or you can always do a System Restore going back to when you know paint was there and working .....
