I have about 10 games listed in Programs, but they are available under the straightforward title of Games.

Accessories, of course, has Paint, WordPad and NotePad amongst the usual inhabitants.

what do you mean losing them? do they just dissappear? could it be a virus or something?

Have you scanned with upto-date AV & antispyware?

Online scanners/removers if required: AV click here & antispyware click here. G

By the way you are restoring/installing them via Add/Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows Components?
