is it windows 98 or windows xp, you may have to save the old files to external disc drive and reinstall the operating system

Go to the Control Panel and click on Add/Remove Programs.
Click on Add/Remove components.
Accessories should be highlighted and have a tick against it.
Click on Details and make sure Games is Checked.

As Above in XP, Go to Control Panel double Click on Add Remove Programs then click on Add/Remove Windows Components on the Left,Double Click on Accessories and Utilities, If Games as got a Tick by it, remove the tick then re-tick it, Click Apply then OKAY
