Uninstalled MSPaint, how do I get it back?

  1. I was doing a Disk Clean up and I accidently deleted my Microsoft Paint ( which I use alot ), I was wondering how I can get it back?

    If I reinstall Windows will I get it? Also, if I do reinstall would I have to enter the CD key again? Because the Windows copy I have came with a used CD key and I had to call Microsoft for them to give me a new one.

    Or can I just redownload it through the MSĀ® website?

    First you need to insert your windows XP ( or whatever Windows you are using) into your cd-rom, then

    Start ==> Control Panel ==> Add/Remove programs ==> Add/Remove Windows Components

    Double-click Accessories and Utilities
    Double-click Accessories
    check Paint and click OK, OK.
