I think I accidentally deleted the Windows games from my accessories folder(by way of an anti-spyware scan?). When I tried to use my XP disc to reinstall, it was smooth sailing until a window popped and asked for the SP2 disc. I have made a few attempts to download the service pack without having to install it automattically, but to no avail. So; is there a way to make a service pak 2 disc without waiting 4-6 weeks for microsoft to mail it up to the cold north? :thumbsup:

I'm surprised you need your OS disk to reinstall these games. Normally if they have been previouslyu installed it's simply Add/remove programs, Windows Component, Accessories, games. If games are already checked, uncheck and click OK. Then go and recheck them and OK your way out.
