Games Explorer got Bugged

I got my Windows Games Explorer bugged up thanks to VGEE... Now I can't add games by dragging the file into the Games Explorer. Can someone help me fix this without doing a repair from the Windows DVD or any other complicated stuff? Thanks in advance...

Sure, no problem. Try a system restore to get back to a point before the troubles began.

As JonathanKing said

Ive had issues with VGEE in the past as well. In the future, try just adding them manually:

Works much better.

LOL! Thanks, totally forgot that I could do that...
@Wishmaster - No need, I somehow managed to get VGEE up and working again after the system restore: -vgee.png

Edit: Wanted to Rep+ Jonathan_King, but I need to spread around some more rep before giving him Rep+ again...
