Yesterday I noticed my games (free cell, solitaire, etc) were gone. As well as my calculator. What the heck happened? I used the calculator in the morning and in the afternoon it was gone.

I'm using XP. I was able to find free cell by searching my files and folders but when I go to start>programs>games> it says "empty" where many games such as solitaire, free cell spider, tetris, ect. were located. I really have no idea what made them disappear.

You can try going to your control panel. Click Add/Remove programs. On the left side click Add/Remove Windows Components. Double - click Accessories and Utilities and make sure there is a check mark next to games. If not click the box. Click O.K. and then hit next. Try that out! If that doesn't work you can try to do a system restore to a point where you had your games. :thumbsup:

try installing Sp3 RC2 to see if that helps and try googling them there's a xp powertoy by microsoft called power calculator it has better design Go to the XP home Page http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloa...g_id=10282XPHb1 then go to powertoys or whatever you want. Go to yahoo answers and ask where to download them you get more answers. I got the pinball on http://www.sonicsam.net/files/random/
