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:
http://www.getpaint.net/download.html

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:
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

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.

My friend was using Windows Photo Viewer, and now my desktop I can't open any icons, and when I do it says Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't...


There should be files type issue first make sure your photo image open in ms paint if it will open with mspaint then your photo file type is fine but if it will not open there then you need to check file type. For that go to control panel ->folder option then files type . Check that your photo file type will open with photo viewer then apply then check. If still same then need to repair photo viewer because it is corrupt. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to edit the picture?


You can edit a picture using Microsoft Paint brush. It comes free with Microsoft Windows XP and other MS OS.
To access Paintbrush. Go to the Start button and in the pop up menu click run. In the open run box type "mspaint" command and press Enter key. A window will open and you can edit pics.
MS Paintbrush is a very simple software. If you want to do something really rich you have to separately buy or download and purchase "Adobe Photoshop" to really work like professional.

I cannot access ms office


Your question is too broad. But, of course, I can share you some tips on that. Please observe the following diagnosis:
  1. Make sure that you have an installed MS Office App. in your PC;
  2. If you installed it by yourself make sure that you did install it properly and completely;
  3. If there are no icons in your desktop try accessing it through the Start Menu > All Programs > Microsoft Office;
  4. If you couldn't find it there try to use the Run in the Start Menu: msword for Word, excel for Excel, mspub for Publisher, mspnt for PowerPoint, mspaint for Paint, etc.; or
  5. Try to access in on local drive particularly on drive C: > Program File > Microsoft Office or in other local drives like D: and E:.

(Provide the Administrator password or confirmation if prompted to do so.)
Right-click the Windows Update service and click Stop.

2. Click Start, type %windir% in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

I tried to download MS Paint from control panel/add/remove windows components but when i click on add/remove windows components a message appears stating that "SETUP WAS UNABLE TO OPEN INFORMATION FILE...


1. Open a cmd line
2. start
3. then click on run, type "cmd" in the box then ok.
4. When the cmd box pops up c:>
5. type: c:>\windows\inf\sysoc.inf
6. when the note pad window pops up scroll down till you see the line:

TabletPC=tabletoc.dll,TabletSetupProc,Tabletpc.inf,HIDE,7

It would be wise to save the "TabletPC=tabletoc.dll,TabletSetupProc,Tabletpc.inf,HIDE,7" string to replace if anything goes wrong.

Just cut and paste in word etc and you can just paste it back in the sysoc notepad if anything weird happens, OR

7. Simply highlight this then delete it. Now hit save in the file option tab. Close the window and now you should have access to the change or delete files in the control panel..

if this works for you let me know
