Use the "Restore" function to an earlier time. Where did you download the Java from?

Hey Ewen, tried recover on the last 2 dates and I need windows 7 to have it work. I'm an old computer with xp service pack 3 program. Do the games that windows has built in come back maybe from downloading the windows xp service pack 3 again? I downloaded the java from the java site. It prompted me to delete old java programs and I did, but I guess one of them was controlling the games windows has built in. I went to windows and java for help, but got nowhere with them.

The version of Solitaire built into Windows XP is located in c:\windows\system32\sol.exe

and Internet Backgammon is located in C:\Program Files\MSN Gaming Zone\Windows\bckgzm.exe

Can you confirm that the programs themselves are actually missing and you're not talking about a program shortcut, perhaps those found in your Start Menu?

Also, can you confirm that you're actually talking about the Microsoft versions of these games and not ones you personally downloaded?

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
