Hello Spud,

You might check to see if you may beable to right click on it and click "Delete" to remove it from the hidden folder below.

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Do you mean to say that when you right-click nothing happens and you don't get the menu of options as shown below?

Spud,

If it's one of the default games that come with Windows 7, then you can use Windows Features to removed the game.
