hi thanks vog, when i type calculator for example in search it comes up as a result, so they seem to be on the computer but not where i want them. if i do control panel, add remove windows components, it may remove them forever?
hi Vog when i type in %SystemRoot%\System32\mspaint.exe paint does run. i tried a system restore to when they were there but it didnt work. also i in=stalled some import files since then so i could lose them if i go earlier
