    Regarding this problem..

    your installed ms-office application it not supported paint application..

    better, you can uninstall the currently install ms-office application..
    then..
    choose supported like ms-office 2007 version..
    after..
    install your system...

    better,
    once you can apply restart after ms-office 2007 installed..
    now..
    you can open the ms-office paint-application..

    it surely work fine..
    thanks..

    Hello Friend,

    Well, there is some serious software related issue to your Windows XP operating system. It seems to me the OS is corrupted so you are not being able to use paint in Windows XP. For your information Windows XP is an old Operating System and you should use Windows 7 insted of windows xp. Format your PC and then install Windows 7 to any drive of your choice (C or D). After installation of the Winodws 7 restart the machince and now you can use Paint in Winodws 7 Operating system.

    Bye,

    Hi friend,

    This types of problems occurs whenever the system gets corrupted. So according to me you should repair the entire Operating system.

    Now please follow the below steps to repair your system.:

    >> Insert the Windows XP cd in the W/R

    >> Restart the computer,

    >> then press "del" or "F2" button to go to the BIOS setting,

    >> Then after select "Boot" tab here

    >> Here keep the "CD/DVD as your first boot device" and "HDD as the second boot device".

    >> Press "F10" to "save the setting and exit".

    >> Then a windows will appear "Press any key from the keyboard to boot from the CD/DVD"

    >> you have to press any key from the keyboard to boot.

    >> then press "R" key for the repair.

    >> Then after go ahead as per the instruction......


    Hope this information is helpful to you..

    All the Best.
