Windows 7: Games Explorer Folder - Restore Default Games

28 Nov 2010   #10

Windows 7 Home Premium, 32 bit

I did a System restore a few days ago. No change occurred. The icons are all in place. When i click on them, the system appears to be trying to find the game but then it simply stops searching. No error message appears. The only game that works when i click on the icon is Chess Titans.

My "upgrade" from XP to Windows 7 has been nothing short of a nightmare filled with numerous problems. This is the last problem to deal with....i hope.

If you have a retails Windows 7 installation DVD, then you might consider doing a repair install to hopefully fix this then.

Hello Shashi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What edition of Windows 7 do you have, and what games are not being restored?

Did you check the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial to see if that may apply?
