Hello,
Spider solitare has been deleted as are all of my games. I don't care about the others but how can I recover spider solitare?

I couldn't live without Spider Solitaire on my computer!

Go to:

Start Button-> Control Panel-> Add/Remove Programs-> Add/Remove Windows Components Button (on left side of window)-> double-click Accessories & Utilities-> put a checkmark beside Games option and then click OK button.

Your Soltaire should be back.

Cheers!

I should point out, that in Vista the add/remove programs icon, is just called programs.

This is the right method to reinstall the games. You will most likely need your windows disc for this process.

Hit a memory speed-bump there <grin>... "Programs and Features" I think.

Thanks for clarifying aford10!

I will try, but it looks like I will have to reinstall it with a disc as the games option is gone also. I recently went from dial up internet and to high speed . Something might have been deleted there and I will check and see if I didn't delete something in error. Thanks to all for the suggestions...SONAR

I am sorry but all othe posted replies do not work. GAMES is no longer avalible as an option. I am afraid something cause it to be deleted and I don't know what I did or if it was something I didn't do. I appreciate the response but I have found anothe spider solitare game on the internet. It isn't as good as Microsft's but it will suffice. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR TRYING TO HELP :hello:  ...sonar

The easiest next effort, would be to boot off your Vista disc, and do a windows repair.
