Hi

Can anyone tell me how to install the games please?

I've done it through the control panel and tried to turn the games features on but get an error message which says "an error has occurred, not all the features were successfully changed" and I just can't get past this.

Thanks so much

These games should have come already installed on your Desktop with Windows 7 so please try and explain to me what you are doing in the control panel ?

I was advised that by default Windows 7 has the games turned off so to follow these instructions:

Start
Control Panel
Programs and Features
turn windows features on and off
and then check the games box
but all i get is an error message as I said in my original post

thanks for your help

Just open your start menu, click on games , then choose which one you want to play. They aren't turned off by default.
