I would like to delete Freecell, Solitaire, Minesweeper etc from my Windows XP machine. (home edition, service pack 2) I tried Add/Remove Windows Components, went through to Accessories and Utilities, went to Details and Games, checked the box, clicked OK, and it seemed to run - but the games are still there!

Do you meant the Microsoft Games (ie Freecell, Hearts,etc...) in XP?
You will need the XP CD to reinstall the Games if the Games had been removed.
Click Start -> Control Panel ->Add or Remove Programs(under catergory view)->Click Add/Remove Windows Components, this will bring up the "Windows Component Wizard", Check or tick - Accessories and Utilities (you can click on ->details to view the options your are installing)-> click next & follow the wizard to finish the installations.
The game might have got corrupted probably due to virus. Scan your computer for virus. I recommend quickheal antivirus here is the limk
after scanning the computer you should repair the xp for this boot the computer through a bootable cd and in the main menu make it repair. make sure that you set boot priority to the dvd drive for booting through the cd
Yes they can because they are TeMPorary files. Any files that say *.TMP can be errased. Use tune up utlilities from http://www.tuneup.com to download and use to delete unwanted temp files. Take care :)
go to control panel-> add remove programs-> add remove windows components-make sure to put check mark on accesories and utilies then double click it then look for games put a check mark again then hit next
You can use "Add or Remove Programs" to re-install your default windows games, I hope this procedure can help you, its under windows XP Home or Professional.
