Windows 7: No application Windows when opening mspaint

No application Windows when opening mspaint

Hello to everyone,

I know, that this is a forum for Windows 7. However my problem is on Windows Server 2008R2 Ent, but with normal desktop application mspaint.

There is a problem, that sometimes it is not possible to open mspaint untill restart of the system. When I run mspaint, there is no error message (neither in event viewer) and no application windows. In task manager I can see that process is running but thats all. If I will provide you with memory dump of mspaint, is there someone who can help?

Thank you,

Hello Martin, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

Do you have an icon on your taskbar for Paint?

If so, you might see if using the tutorial below may help if Paint is just offscreen somehow.
