Games Explorer

Hi, i have many games in my PC and two of them is not being recognized by the Games Explorer.

I wanted them to be recognized, so they could download the Art, and i can receive updates through it ^^.
The games are : Boiling Point Road to Hell and Age of Empires 1 Rise to Rome.
I can't see why AGE 1 is not being recognized since its a MS product.

Also, i could do without the Art, but i wanted to change the ICON and Games Explorer only recognizes the .EXE icon ( which is UGLY ), so, how do i change an .EXE Icon? Or better, how do i make Games Explorer to recognize my games?
