I recently had a problem with my home computer (run on Windows XP) and lost some information along with my basic accessories that I need. I tried reinstalling XP and have had no luck. Is there a way to get the paint and calculator programs back on my computer?

Re: paint on windows xp
Put the winxp cd in the drive. goto start settings control panel, add remove programs, left side add/remove windows components, if accessories is checked then paint,calc etc are installed.
if acc. is checked goto start search/ files and folders/ all files and folders, type in accessories search c: drive select accessories folder location c:\documents and settings\all usersopen folder and link to paint, calc etc will be there.

Your current operating system is most likely a version of windows. Depending on your model and type of computer, you may have any of the following versions of windows:
Windows XP Home Edition
Windows XP Professional Edition
Windows Vista Home Basic Edition
Windows Vista Home Premium Edition
Windows Vista Business Edition
Windows Vista Enterprise Edition
Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Windows 7 Starter
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows Thin PC
You can't do a direct update from windows xp to windows 7 you will need to perform a clean install. This means you should backup everything on your computer as when you install windows 7 this information with be deleted.
I would recommend windows 7 home premium as the best windows 7 for most people as it has everything you will require. Windows 7 Ultimate is more expense but gives you nothing of note extra.
Hope that helps.
When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form avast.com. Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.
win xp required more then 256 mb ram mcafee antivirus make system slow, it take more ram so u remove antivirus & also go to run give msconfig then remove start up items. for more information call me +919985064600. avast anti-virus is better it's do not make slower & also norton.
