You can install them from your OS disk by going to add remove windows components i believe.

paint is in the system32 folder. Do a search for it or make a shortcut to it on your desktop, then make a copy of it and put in where it belongs in your start menu. The calculator is in doc and settings\all users\startmenu\programs\accesories
