Hmmmm; I *already* have "Take Ownership" in my "right-click menu" so I right-clicked "Microsoft Games" in Windows Explorer and that menu disappeared so I right-clicked it again and chose "Delete" but same problem as originally.

It's working for me, you must be doing something wrong.

You will need to click Take Ownership otherwise it won't work, regardless if you see it or not. After clicking Take Ownership you can then delete.

Try using the Unlocker tool.

Hmm; if Windows makes it this difficult, maybe your earlier "warning" was not in vain. I'm starting to think I am forced to LEAVE the games to waste space on my shrinking Hard Drive.

Thanks for trying, Infinite.

Infinite, I found at How do you get rid of games in your games list? - Microsoft Answers that you cannot delete them.

Yes they can, I did it to my PC. But since I wanted to keep them, I restored them from Recycle Bin.

You would also need to remove them from regedit if you want them removed alltogether.
