mspaint isn't very large. I would leave it alone especial as it is in the All Users profile. If you remove it you may no longer have access to it.

Oh, I recently tried to get it fixed. Becuase everytime I run Paint it takes a long time to open it, than when I do get it open I try and close it and it says "out of memory"

you could delete one of them. they should be shortucts to the actual executable.

the actual path would be c:\windows\system32\mspaint.exe. Is this system dual boot or upgraded from nt or 2000?
