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?

Have you changed anything in your settings or setup recently before you lost sound? What platform are you running? Windows 98, windows 2000, Windows XP Home, Windows XP Pro, Windows Vista, Windows 7? or something else
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.
