Install them again from Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Windows Components > Accessories and Utilities.

Pinball is hidden. Navigate, using Windows Explorer, to C:\Windows\INF\sysoc.inf. Double click sysoc.inf to open it. You will see this line in there somewhere:


Delete the word "HIDE", so that the line looks like this:


go to, File > Save and save the file. Close Windows Explorer and go back to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and the Pinball entry should be there now.

Glad you got it sorted, tutts. I can't do without a little play at Pinball, once in a while, either. ;-)
