For the past two days I have noticed a few things missing on my computer. I am missing paint, and games, I'm not sure if anything else is missing other than those two.
I have yahoo games, but the other games are missing. Example, pinball, solitaire etc...
I don't use these programs much, but I would like to have them back.
Any solutions on how to get these back will be greatly appreciated.
I am running Windows XP. If you need more info to help me, just ask!

Thanks in advance!

:blink: I think I may be doing something wrong. I'm not sure! I don't want to sound dumb, but I'm not sure what you mean when you say"tick games" or "tick paint". What does tick mean? :whistling:

I didn't know what tick meant, so I just checked the boxes. then when I clicked next, a box popped up that says Files Needed The file 'freecell.exe' on windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM is needed.Over to the right side of that it had a OK, or Cancel buttons. Below all of that it had, "Type the path where the file is located, and then click OK. It had a Browse button. I really wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I just put in my Windows XP Home Edition, and clicked OK. Nothing happen at all. I just couldn't figure it out.

I am really computer illiterate, I'm really hoping you know what I did wrong, or what Im not doing at all. Thanks you so much for helping!
