Restore WordPad in Windows XP

1) WordPad by default is missing under, "Control Panel" -> "Add or Remove Programs" -> "Add/Remove Windows Components" -> "Accessories and Utilities" -> "Accessories".
2) Edit the sysoc.inf file in C:\WINDOWS\inf and delete the word "HIDE" while leaving the extra comma undeleted, from this line,
3) Save.
4) WordPad is now listed in "Add or Remove Programs".
