I play free cell a lot. Recently the cards quit "disappearing when the game is successfully completed although the window showing wins/losses and asking if I want toplay again appears. It seems to run faster bu tthis happened after one of two things were done close together.
(1) there were several critical updates.
(2) I ran CCleaner register cleaner.
I am guessing a .dll is missing.
I have gone through the procedure of checking and unchecking the box in Windows 7 Features nothing changes except I now have an empty Icon on the deskto but the game plays the same as above described.
Also about the same time as some of the critical update,s my opening window has a thumbprint it did not have before. before all of this mess my start up went to straight from opening Windows splash to desktop as I am the only uses and thus also administrator.
