If you're lucky, you may have the Windows setup files on your hard drive, maybe C:\Windows\Options\Cabs If you do, you can reinstall wordpad from there -

add/remove programs>windows setup>accessories>wordpad

when windows asks for the CD, point it towards the Cabs folder.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!
