    Don't use it. Why would you want to remove it?

    Seems to me mspaint.exe is quite minimalistic.
    Removing paint is like trying to remove wordpad.

    You might bork your system if certain actions depend on it.
    You would have to change permissions and try to override "TrustedInstaller"
    Not a good idea.

    Today's systems have Terabytes of storage. What's a little bloat?
    Just delete the desktop shortcut...

    I think you can probably just delete it, I think its quite minimal in its files.
