    Like the title suggests, I cannot find Paint anywhere.
    I am using Windows XP Home, and as I normally would to access paint, I click 'Start':'All Programs':'Accessories'
    It should be here. It simply aint. It's just not there, and I really need to use it. It has always been there and I was using it just a few days ago. I've not touched anything to uninstall it somehow so does anyone know where I can find it?
    I've tried searching the net to download it again but cant find anything there either.
    Really appreciate any help, thanks a lot!
