My grandparents took their laptop in for repair and had to have the OS(Win XP SP3) re-installed. They brought the laptop down for me to look at because they could not find Solitaire :)  I figured I'd just go to components and add games, right?

Went to;

- Control Panel
- Add/Remove Windows Components
- Accessories and Utilites

And there is no games option to add Solitaire back in. I backed out and looked at the list of components to see if there was a lone games component and nothing....

Any idea how I can add the games back in for them, given there is nothing in the component option to do so?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

copy the games you want from your XP installation: C:\WINDOWS\system32 and put them in your grandparents' install.

I looked then searched the XP CD that I have and didn't see anything I could install.
