Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
There might dll file gone currupt msPaint is loaded but does not launch
There doesn't seem to be an easy way to reinstall MS Paint. Other people in the same fix were told to try this as a substitute:
If I were in your shoes, though, I wouldn't worry so much about Paint. I'd worry about whatever caused the corruption, and is anything else corrupted? This may be a good time to try some free anti-virus/anti-spyware software and make sure you don't have problems from that quarter. If you don't have any antivirus software, this one generally works for me, and has reasonably good reviews:
AVG Free edition, http://free.grisoft.com (keep going through menus to get the free one; they really try to market the paid version.)
There are several good anti-spyware programs out there. Make sure you update before running scans. The two that have worked the best for me:
Spybot S&D / Spybot Search & Destroy, scroll down a bit here:
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Again, run the updates before you scan. It's not a bad idea to run the anti-spyware stuff regularly -- weekly, monthly, somewhere in between.
