Paint on windows xp

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?

I'm running windows xp professional how can i upgrade to windows 7 and which version of windows 7 is better for me


Hi, 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.

Error messege on startup


Read the information at the following URL:
http://www.instant-registry-fixes.org/how-to-fix-msvcr71dll-errors/

If this just recently happened (usually due to software install), try running a System Restore back to before you started having the problem.

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back before the problem occurred. You will be prompted to reboot.

If you still have the problem after rebooting, you can try to fix corrupted Windows file by running SFC /scannow from a command prompt (you will likely need your Window XP CD).

If all that fails, boot to your Window XP CD and run a repair. You should not lose any data, but backing up is always recommended..

Let me know if you have questions.

Help me..whats going on with windows xp home edition


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.
