I inadvertanty uninstalled the Paint function that comes pretty
standard with Windows.  I'm having trouble finding out how to
reinstall.  I have my original discs and did the "repair" function. 
Any way to reinstall this?  Thanks

Try the following:
3.	On the left side of the Window, click ADD/REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS. 
4.	Under ACCESSORIES AND UTILITIES click details, and deselect Paint.
Click OK, NEXT, etc to complete the uninstall process.
5.	Repeat these steps but select Paint to reinstall it.
Let us know if that works.
