None of the games for Win 7 display

I just installed Windows 7 Professional Upgrade as a new install (was already running the RC). None of the games installed and I don't see an option to get them back. The game explorer folder is empty as is the game folder. I went through the customize taskbar option to display menu items for games but nothing shows up. Help !!!

I haven't installed my copy of Win7 Pro yet, but I think I remember hearing of this before. I believe the solution was to turn the games back on under Add/Remove Windows Features in the Control Panel (click on Programs in the CP, you should see the option to change Windows features on and off).

Display Issue for Games
After trying a few games (Warcraft 3, CnC Generals), I see that 7 takes into account widescreen resolutions for games that don't support them.
