    I've tried this more than a dozen times to no avail. It's a complete mystery why they're not there anymore and why following the above instructions hasn't worked, but I'm so frustrated as I miss my solitaire fix. I refuse to pay to download someone else's version as I should be able to add it, but can't seem to make it happen. I've searched the internet repeatedly and the only advice is similar to this. It seems mine is the only machine in the world experiencing this problem! Argh!

Hi,

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.

1. Go to START
2. Click CONTROL PANEL
3. Then select ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS
4. A new Windows will appear, look for the ADD/REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS.
5. Click Accessories & Utilities, make sure it has CHECK mark.
6. Click on DETAILS
7. Place a CHECK mark on GAMES, then click OK
8. Then click NEXT, additional programs will be installed.

see if the games were back already.

My laptop computer is very slow to start up, even though we have high speed internet. i can play several games of spider solitaire before my home page comes up. i always delete the browsing history from...


> several games of Spider Solitaire ...

That is *EXTREMELY* slow.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the network-cable from your computer.
Turn the computer on -- without a network-connection, does it start-up (to the Windows "wallpaper') any faster?

Uninstall BitTorrent and/or LimeWire and/or any other "file-sharing" software.

Run a "full" virus-scan -- something BAD may be running on your computer.
