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 .....
