Hello MuffinsCanFly,

Please check if your games work after doing these steps:

  • rightclick on your game, choose properties
  • click on the tab compatibility (or something like that, I don't have an English version of windows)
  • check the box, "run this program in compatibility mode. And then choose in the list below which starts with "Windows XP (service Pack 2)" Windows 98/ ME
Then click on OK. and try if your game works now. You will have to do this with every game that doesn't work.
If you need more clarification, please let me know.
