Hello - just inherited my son's Asus tablet[?] running XP SP3. Many of the folders are shown as empty, including the games folder, so games cannot be accessed in the usual way. Having looked at MS help the exe files for the games are still there, and can be accessed via the full file name. Remove and install programs - microsoft components - has the accessory box ticked. Would appreciate any advice and sorry in advance if this has been asked before.
Thanks for these responses.Sorry for the delay - work intervened. Will try scannow, but machine has no CD drive. 'Games' is ticked, and malwarebytes installed. Will also have a try with unhide.exe. Will post Sun when done. Thanks again.
If it's the Microsoft inbuilt games. Games may be ticked in first window but have you ticked the individual games to install in 'Details'?
Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs -> Add/Remove Windows Components (in left pane) and another popup window opens -> highlight 'Accessories and Utilities' then highlight 'Games' and click on 'Details', put ticks in every box of game you want and click on OK, and OK again. Then click on 'Next' and windows will install the games, Click on 'Finish'
Many thanks for the responses - very much appreciated. All MS games and MS calculator resored after finding the files in the C drive and moving them to the games folder. Don't know how they went adrift, but happily now back. Thanks again. Ian
