    Yea skype, google chrome, steam, utorrent etc.. they all work! ;/

    Only games that are the problem and they are in no way linked to each other so i do not really understand the problem.

    Couple of things you can try

    Does the game load up on the task bar at the bottom and not display? When you try and click it nothing happens? Or you just double click and the process appears in your task manager?

    Check the resolution setting you have and see if its compatable with the games? is it just full screen games or windowed aswell, Probally not the issue but its worth a shot.

    Another thing, Time of you report says 12/19/2011, 13:03:45, Is your clock changed or am i just being stupid :) ? this can somtimes cause problems espically with online games
