I recently received a 2 year old computer as a gift. It's a Dell Studio 540 running a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional (64 bit). I got everything transfered from my older Windows Vista computer and everything has been going fine.

Except today I discovered a glitch in Solitaire. When I win, the window comes up and tells me how many wins to how many games, how long the streak was, etc.

But when I bring up the statistics window all the statistics read Zero and the Reset button is inactive.

That can't be right.

On the Vista computer the statistics come up and I can reset them to Zero and start over.

Anybody come across this and have a solution?

Hi -
Is this in the "In-built" M/soft version of the game, or is this another version of the game ??
>>"running a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional (64 bit). "<< Have you updated to Service Pack 1 yet, plus all other M/soft updates ??

Thank You -
EDIT - I just checked my Win7 "inbuilt" version - Click on Game at the top left and there should be an item that says Statistics -
This had all the info there Reset, Games won, Percentages, etc, etc,

Yes.

Yes.

That's exactly how it works on my other computer (Vista).

Doesn't work on the Windows 7 computer.

Hi again -
Is the Game option available at the top left of the screen in Solitaire ??

What is seen under this listing ?

Also: Run sfc /scannow and then chkdsk /r from an Elevated Command Prompt to make sure all files were correctly loaded on the Windows7 -
