Re: Paint

Hmm, I tried this and all I can suggest is moving the taskbar to check for the box underneath. Right click>unselect Lock the Taskbar, and try dragging it to a different place on the screen or move it down to look for the box. good luck!

Logon Change

Enable Log-On Screen

Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".

In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color

To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".

Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".

Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.

Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".

In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.

In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).

The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.

Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

I don't know how i will start drawing manga on MS PAINT, can you please help?

  1. Open up the MS Paint program to start a new document. The program can be found in the Accessories menu on your computer.
  2. Click on the background and foreground boxes, and select the colors you want each to have. Using a white background and black foreground is the most common choice for drawing manga because you can colorize it later.
  3. Select the tool you want to use to draw a manga picture of a face, for example. Using the pencil tool allows you to draw any type of shape you want while clicking on the buttons for ellipses or rectangles will make that shape appear on your screen.
  4. Draw the facial features with the pencil or brush tools.
  5. Make light glares in the eyes by using the eraser tool. Click on it, and then remove a small section of color from inside the iris.
  6. Create hair by clicking the "Line" and "Curve" buttons. These tools draw lines wherever the cursor is placed.
Hope this helps :)

There is a problem with my orbit downloader, it downloades the item, but then the icon and item i have downloaded disappears.

Check your preferences. Depending on the OS, you may have to look in your "Downloads" folder, or possibly in the Program files>Orbit>downloads folder (or something along that line). Be sure to set it for somewhere you can find the files. With anything like this i always reccomend to set it to download to your desktop, then you can just drag and drop it into whatever folder you want easily.

Ms paint stop working

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, (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:

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.
