Hello, faith

Please use the Forum for answers!

I'm moving your post on Gaming forum where you'll find a community better suited to answer your question.

Some manufacturers may include third-party games when you buy a new computer, these will have to be uninstalled separate of Windows games. You should be able to uninstall most of the applications, including games, in the section programs and features in Control Panel.

To access the programs and features, click Start and select Control Panel. In Control Panel, click programs and then programs and features. Third-party software, select the application you want to uninstall, and then click Uninstall just above the list.

To uninstall the games provided by Windows Vista, go to programs and features, and then click Turn Windows Features On or Off in spots on the left. You may be prompted for an administrator password or to continue. It can take a bit of the screen of Windows features to complete loading. In the Windows features page, clear the check box next to games and click OK. Windows may ask you to reboot after it's finished work.

    Hi andypily1,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Answers community.

    Try the steps one by one and check below.

    STEP 1:
    How do I add or remove games in Windows XP

    STEP 2:

    In most cases if the games are deleted from the computer files will remain on the computer.

    I suggest that you are looking for game files in the system32 folder.

    Later, click on Start menu click on run and type c:\\windows\system32 in the following search of the window for the file of games like free cell. If you get the files in the system32 folder then copy the file to c:\\program files\start menu\ later in the game folder.

    STEP 3:
    If fails it above steps, try a system restore to the point when the game was available on the computer.
    See the link below to learn how to perform the system restore.

  • How can I remove all the info from WMP rocket?


    Recently, I synced my rocket to WMP and ripped CDs. But now when I plug my rocket in everything I see when browsing the content are the CD I ripped and not the music files that are also out there (who are not torn, just mp3 files). I went to the 'end sync partnership', a box came and I clicked 'yes '. But when I plug it again all I can see is the CD I ripped just once again. How can I remove all traces of my "rocket" from the computer? I'm out of ideas.

    Thanks in advance, I hope you can help and that I explained myself properly

    Hi, thanks for your response. Yes, I'm looking through windows Explorer. And the USB mode is automatically detect. I don't know what means MTP or MSC?

    but you're right, I don't care if I could see all the files at once.

    The problem is that when you use Auto detect mode the computer chooses what USB mode to connect to the computer. So, if your using WMP it uses MTP mode, but if your use drag and drop will use MSC mode, and when you connect to your computer you can see what has been added in the mode that you are connected to. So if you connect in MSC it is unclear to which has been added to PSG. If you want to add a lot of files with WMP, I'd say he bets on PSG here and let (you can use the drag and drop in PSG too).

    To ensure that you can see everything that you can format your drive and then go to settings > system settings > USB Mode > PSG > press the Center button, and then reload the player.

    Original title: IE windows games: hearts, spider and others

    I lost all the games that came with windows vista and would like to know how to get them back is to say: hearts, spider, scanning of the spirit and others

    Hi JosephAdams,

    Did you the latest changes on the system?

    I suggest that you turn off the games feature in windows vista and re activate and check if it works.

    a. click the Start button, select Control Panel, click programs and then click turn on turn Windows features on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    b. to turn a Windows feature, select the check box next to the set. To turn a Windows feature off, clear the check box.

    c. click OK.

    First you can disable the function of games using the method above restart the computer and turn on the games feature and check if it works.

  • Why my dads account Windows Live Mail have much more FONTS, (including the one I have want - old English) than mine? And how can I get all the other FONTS? Thank you.

    My father and I have a very similar computer (his has a little more memory, until I bought a thing of 1000 mb storage) we have almost the same e-mail program, but it flows from Telus, I run Hotmail. There are many more fonts included in its ability to e-mail. How can I get all those other fonts, I change the fonts almost all the letters that I write. Thank you for your help, and I hope that I have explained myself enough.

    A computer has a folder of fonts.  Some fonts come with the computer, some are added by installed programs, and some can be added by the user.

    When you do anything on the computer, in the folder fonts fonts are used.

    When you create an html e-mail, or the word document, the font is a part of the information stored by email or document.

    Fonts do not attach to e-mail or in this document.

    When another computer displays the e-mail or document, the police does not exist on this computer.  Another font will be used.

    The only way to have your email look exactly as you created it is to send a photo of the enamel.

  • How can I remove all the pieces of Apple's music added to my library?

    I went through the free trial and then two months of Apple's music. I do not simply continue to pay monthly fees. However, for the five months I had Apple music I added a lot of albums to my music I can play them from my iPhone in my car. In any event I am now having to look and try to find the albums or songs, I added one at a time to remove them. It's infuriating. Is there a way to remove all Apple music from my music library at the same time?

    On the tab my music toggle the display of the Album song. Then right-click on the column headers and check that 'iCloud status' is checked. Then click this column to sort your music based on iCloud status. Locate the first track 'Apple Music', click it, scroll to the last piece of music from Apple and shift click to highlight all the music from Apple. You can finally do a right-click the selection and click on Remove to remove all Apple music songs recorded.

  • How can I remove all the children from scene to a given index position?


    I created a simple game - when the game ends, I want to remove only some of the children from the scene and let some interface elements behind.

    The children I want to delete, I added at the level of the index 6.

    My code to add child objects to the start looks like this:


    Then, when the game is over and I need to clear the screen of all these objects table laid, I want to delete all the child objects to the index position 6 only, while the other elements of the scene are left intact.

    I don't know how to use a while loop to remove all children from the scene, but do not know the syntax to remove all children from a given only depth index position.

    My gameOver() function is currently using this code:

    getChildAt (6);

    removeChildAt (6);

    but this removes an instance of one child.

    I must be able to detect all children at index 6 and remove them all.

    I can't find the syntax necessary to achieve this.

    Can anyone help?

    A single object can occupy a level of the index.  When you add another at the same level, the previous is moved up in the order.  You probably want to do is to store the references to these children in a table and use it to target out them.
