Hi, I have Windows XP Home edition and when I looked at the games (the standard ones that they give you, e.g pinball, solitare etc,) it just said empty next to it!! Does any1 know why and how I'd be able to get them back? Thanks for your help! :thumbsup:

You can also go to the Control Panel and click Add/Remove Programs. On the left hand of the Add/Remove Programs window select Add/Remove Windows Components, then double click Accessories and Utilities and recheck the Games checkbox. Just make sure you have your Windows XP disk because you will most likely be prompted for it to install them again.

I had the exact same problem. Just insert your WinXP disk & when you are given your options, choose >install additional Windows products? (or something like that)
you will be presented w/ a box w/ options of what else you want to install, just click on the games box.
