    What ever happened to solitaire? I have a Vista at work and a new systm 7 at home. Neither with Solitaire. I don't recall an MS system since Win95 that did not have solitaire. The new HP i got has some stupid coin slot system I have to pay them to run a game on my computer. Like that will ever happen! I'm resentful they installed it on my computer. Any ideas? Looking for a freebee that I have used for 15 years here....:mad: On the other hand it indicates I don't get bored often.

    Both my Vista and W7 have solitaire

    Go Control Panel>Programs and Features>Turn Windows Features on or off

    expand Games, see if it is selected, if not, tick the box by it, hit OK.

    And a lot of workcenters will not install all the games to prevent employees from wasting time (even though that is only one of the millions of ways to waste time while at work). So you may never be able to get it at work.
