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.

This behavior may occur if you install Windows XP Service Pack 1a (SP1a) on your computer, and do any of the following:
  • You upgrade your Windows XP Home-based computer to Windows XP Professional.
  • You reinstall Windows XP on your computer.
  • You perform a repair of Windows XP on your computer.
To resolve this behavior, after you upgrade your Windows XP Home-based computer to Windows XP Professional, or you perform a reinstall or repair of Windows XP, reinstall Windows XP SP1a on your computer.

After you reinstall the service pack, restart your computer.

try this and tell me incase if any issues

I dont know how to scan from my printer hp psc 1315. printing and copy fine. please help me

Hello, Windows XP provides a basic set of scanning drivers, also referred to as Windows Image Aquisition (WIA) drivers, which you can use as an alternative to scan a document when you cannot scan using the HP drivers. You might choose to use these scanning drivers for one of the following reasons:
  • Your product released before Windows XP and HP has not released drivers that support scanning for your product.
  • You have not installed the available HP software that includes scanning.
  • You are troubleshooting a scanning problem and trying to identify the source of the problem.
Scanning with Paint To scan a document using Paint in Windows XP , follow these steps: NOTE: Before you begin, make sure that the product is connected to your computer.
Click Start , point to All Programs , point to Accessories , and then click Paint .Click File , and then click From Scanner or Camera .Make any desired setting changes.Click Scan .

Install xp on vista home basic toshiba satellite L-40

Yes, Vista Home Basic is junk!

1.Vista is considered an upgrade, compared to Windows XP. Therefore, Vista is not just going to let you install over it.

2.You have to get your Windows XP drivers back.

This is a pretty intricate operation, but once you have detailed information, it becomes do-able.
Below is a link with detailed information, and concise clear illustrations. I felt it would be better to give you this link, to avoid any confusion, and/or misunderstanding of information from me.

Should get you on your way!

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.
