My wife plays Solitaire a lot. Don`t know how but have lost Solitaire and all the other Games from my computer. The folders are still there but they are empty. Have tried finding downloads to replace them without success.They are never the original replacements for the software I have lost.
Computer is Packard Bell ixtreme 3720 with Vista Home Premium.
I desperately need saving from extreme domestic hassle.
Does anyone know how I can regain the original folder contents. Other versions I have downloaded are different and not satisfactory.
Anybody any ideas?
Normally, to restore Windows features you would go to Start / Control Panel / Programs and Features / Turn Windows Features on and off / click on the + sign to the left of Games and check the Games box and choose the Games you want to have available by checking the appropriate boxes.
If you have already tried that and it did not work[usually you have to wait till it loads]maybe untick games wait till that loads and reboot and then go back and tick the games that you want to see.
Once again wait till it loads and then try All programs and then games to see if it works.
If that fails you could try sfc /scannow in command prompt and see if that helps.
Computer is restarted twice a day so no joy there. Did a system restore following problem with Windows Mail and have a feeling I lost the games in that procedure somehow. Empty the recycle bin regularly so nothing in there.
Will have a look at pysolfc tonight.
Many thanks for comments so far.
Pleased to say that I have found the Games. Still not there under Start Menu tree nor one branch of the C drive tree in"Computer". On another branch I tried Program files and there they were. Why they dont appear in all the other places I dont know.
Thank you all for your efforts.
