go into Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs. When that screen
comes up, click the Add/Remove Windows Components in the left pane. Then
with Accessories and Utilities highlighted, click the Details button at the
bottom. On the next screen, highlight (single-click) Games, then the
Details button again. Remove the check mark from Spider Solitare (last
entry), then OK your way out and Windows XP will remove it. Do the same
procedure again (Add/Remove Windows Components, etc.) and install again.
