    My older pc, an HP Pavilion 6630 with W98SE was in the shop for a few days and when it retiurned after a W98 reinstall, the games were gone. I went into systems to reinstall them and I was asked to insert the W98 CD Rom. Unfortunately, the CD I have is just a copy, as I have somehow misplaced the original software some time ago. The copy is corrupted or something, and it won't install the games. If I attempt to use the CD, it somehow corrupts Outlook Express. Don't know why. I have original book fro Microsoft that came with the computer and it has the product key.I hope someone can give me some guidance here.

    This is not our main computer. We have a newer one with XP.
    Thanks, John

    Once I got the PC up and running, I visited the Microsoft web site and spotted a games update. I downloaded this and the games are now back.
