Can anyone help me! I recently installed Southwestern Bell's DSL and Browser. In doing so SWB has automatically installed some Yahoo internet games in the same folder as the MS games. Everything was fine until this morning. I went to open the [Games] folder and found that ALL the ms games were gone and only the yahoo game were left. I performed a search on my computer thnking that just the shortcuts were missing but I am a unable to locate ANY games other than the yahoo games. I search for the individual names of the games and still no luck. Short of reinstalling the Win XP what else can I do? Microsoft, as usual, is no help. Thanks for any help!

Click start then control panel then add / remove then add / remove windows components, click accessories then details, remove tick from games then OK and apply until it starts installer, then after this go back to accessories then details replace tick for games then apply and OK, you will probable need the XP CD, if you have not got this, windows update may offer them in optional software

Thanks, I such an idiot! I should have thought about doing that myself! Sometimes I act as if I've never touched a computer before.

It worked like a charm!
