Windows 7: Weird compatibility issue with older games for 2 weeks now

Weird compatibility issue with older games for 2 weeks now

Just to name a few. Hitman 2, Warcraft 3, Diablo 2 and older games basically they don't work properly anymore. If I'm not connected to the internet they won't launch at all but up until 2 weeks ago they launched fine offline. Scanned my computer a load of times and it doesn't seem to be a virus. It isn't affecting modern programs like WoW or Diablo 3 for example but just older ones.

Like I said I never had this issue up until 2 weeks ago. But these games should work fine offline.

Older Games
Hey, I'm considering an upgrade to 7 and have a large collection of older games which I'm hoping will run on Vista. Firstly, will XP games like Simcity 4 and Civilization 4 work with 7 (without XP Mode)? Secondly, will ANCIENT games like Championship Manager 3 & Settlers 3 (which both...
