Well, that's partially true. When you open a game like checkers for example, it does link to the internet because it lets me play with other people. The file is described as a "Zone Datafile", but if you go to zone.com and try to play the same game it has to be installed to the computer... so it isn't exactly the same thing. Also I cannot remove it with the add/remove; when I try to just delete it, the icon disappears and reappears again...

Try this:

Go to control panel>add /remove programs>add/remove windows components then
click accesories and utilties> details>games>details>lastly uncheck internet games. Then ok out of each window, to complete.
