Just looked at my Control Panel - Add / Remove - add / remove Windows Components under the Accessories and Utilities / Accessories section.
Clicking on Details gives the list including Character Map and it should be checked, if installed.
Otherwise, if it's unchecked, tick it and OK all the way and it should install and appear as stated before
under the Normal Accessories heading, in Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Character Map.
Is it not in Add /Remove - Add/Remove Windows Components - Accessories and Utilities (Details) - Accessories (Details)?
