    Is there any chance it might've been uninstalled somehow?

    Anyways, if you know how to get to the control panel just open up the Add/Remove software app. Then go to Add/Remove Windows Components. If MsPaint is unticked, put a check next to it and then click ok. This should solve your problem if it's a simple one. If not, you're going to have to try find support on MicroSofts support site. I used to have a direct link to the problem you have, but thanks to a wonderfully stable OS...no prizes for guessing which, i lost all the info that took me months to collect.

    Good luck, i hope the simple answer works for you.

    Regards
