Paint program crashed

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Paint program crashed
By Luvn29 on Tuesday, December 23, 2008 - 07:14 pm:

Our paint program on the computer crashed this evening. My son loves to play on it. Is there anywhere I can download this again? Or something similar?

What's the name of the program?

Or are you talking about
Programs->Accessories->Paint
the program that comes with Windows?

By Luvn29 on Wednesday, December 24, 2008 - 08:33 am:

yes, that's the one. Just the simple accessories paint.

Is it crashing everytime you try to start it?

If so I would suspect that something newly installed on the computer is causing the problem.

If so, you may want to try a system restore to a point before the other program was installed.
Programs->Accesories->System Tools->System Restore


Do you have other programs crashing in addition to Paint or have you noticed slowdowns or wierd behavior?

I'd check the following:
(1)Make sure your antivirus is running and then do a rescan of your whole system.

(2)Scan your Hard Drive for bad areas using

(3)My Computer -> Right Click on C -> Properties ->
Tools Tab -> In the "Error checking" section "Check Now" ->Select both check marks and then Start
Tell it to schedule the Disk test and then restart your computer.

(4)Check for Spyware using a free tool like Spybot.

Good Luck!

We had installed a game on the computer recently. I restored to the point right before that and it worked! Thanks so much! My son is so happy! And that makes me happy!

Merry Christmas!
