    Can you please tell me how to re-install Windows Games (i.e. Solitare, Pinball, Minesweeper, Free Cell)? The computer system is Windows 2000. Somehow it has been deleted, or is no longer there. Thanks for any help!

    The easiest way is to go to start, control panel, add remove programs, add/remove windows components(cant remember the exact wording..been a while since I used 2k), highlight accessories and click details. check the box and let them install.

    You will need your windows 2k install disk.

    if it's a work computer, I'm guessing there is a reason for them being removed ;)

    The main games are located in the Windows directory. SOL.EXE, FREECELL.EXE, SPIDER.EXE and MSHEARTS.EXE are the files to look for.
