Missing Tool Box in Paint

I run windows XP. I accidentally moved the tool box off the screen and cannot find a way to get it back. Is there a way to reinstall the Paint program without losing data on the HD? Thanks for any help.

or
go to add/remove in control panel, click on windows components in left column, remove paint, then add paint back in.

I tried that but it still did not work. I also deleted the accessories program from the HD and reloaded it from the XP CD. This too did not work. Then I did a system restore but no success here either. I downloaded the paint program and installed it. The result is the same.
If I reload the windows program from the CD will I lose all the data from my HD? Thanks.

I worked out the solution. I typed in regedit in the run dialog box and deleted the entry paint from it and reloaded the program from the XP CD.
