Windows 7: Win 7 doesn't seem to be obtaining Game info ?

Win 7 doesn't seem to be obtaining Game info ?

Well I've got a few games installed on my system namely :

- Age of Mythology
- Command and Conquer Generals

And when I go into the Games library usually Win 7 updates the games with info and changes the game icon to reflect the game. However as much as I try it doesn't seem to be updating. It's not a huge deal, however it would be nice If I could get it to update. I checked my firewall settings and they seem to be letting it access the Internet. So I don't know.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

it could be those particular games are incompatible with this feature,

for instance: when i installed the original civ IV it wouldnt show its WEI rating, but when i bought the version with all the expansions and reinstalled because it was a later edition it showed them
