I some-how seem to have lost all my Windows installed games i.e FreeCell,Solitaire, Spider Solitaire etc. I have tried to reinstall via control panel, add/remove programs,and add Windows components,and then Accessories/games, but allthough all the ticks are there, I seem to be only able to install the internet versions.

If you have your original OS disc, try a OS Repair.

thanks, but I do not have an orginal os disc, only the back up discs I created as advised by the pc maker = Packard Bell, I don't suppose these would be of much use?

I am not so sure about the recovery disc, but if you have your OS Key on a label on your PC, perhaps you could borrow an OS disc to try the repair.

Thanks, I will look in to that possibility.
