I successfully upgraded my HP Touchsmart desk top machine from W7 to W10 with no problem. However, when I tried to download and install windows seven games all I ended up with is winanero. I don`t know what it is and I do not want it but can`t seem to find and delete it. I know I can revert back to W7 and then reinstall W10 but that seems to be a long way home. I just want to remove winaero. Can anyone help me get rid of it. Incidently, I have  upgraded  two laptops and installed w7 games with no problem.

Hi Al:


Winaero makes Windows 7 games for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.  I have those games myself.  They are safe.  See the link here.


If you want to get rid of the Windows 7 games, then go to the Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, and look for "Windows 7 Games for Windows 8 and 10".  You can uninstall it there.


Hope this helps.  Have a great day.
