I had the same problem, you can re-install them using Start, Control Panel,
Add and Remove programs, System tools, (if you use Windows XP look on the
left hand panel and click on the second box. A wiondows box comes up which
allows you to install windows components. Go to accessories, system tools,
then character map.
Click on each of these obviously. Make sure character map box has a tick in
it then you can install it again. Make sure you have your cd handy because
you will be prompted for it, but ddon't click on anything. You will see the
winndows components wizard in the background, click on that and wait until it
has finished installing then click finish.
I think I have covered everything I did but you will remember doing this
when you first installed windows anyway.
Hope this helps
Len.
