Windows 7: I want my own Boxart in Games Explorer

I want my own Boxart in Games Explorer

I have some old games on my computer so the boxart doesn't load in games explorer. In Vista I used to use Vista Games Explorer editor. Is there one for seven? I read somewhere its to stop piracy, like getting rid of boxart will get rid of pirates. My games are all genuine ,just some of them are old or they are from small game companies. It is really annoying

Here are a couple of other small programs you can try, but I haven't used either of them on 7 so I'm not promising anything.

GamesExplorerBuilder
Game Explorer Builder for Windows Vista

Game Explorer Manager
Game Explorer Manager (GEM) by Extensible Software

I hope one of these works for you.

Well everyone knows that you don't pirate stuff to actually use it. It's all about the boxart.

If a pirate can't view thier collection in a nice, neat order, they give up their evil ways.
