My wife wants me to get rid of spider solitaire on her computer. She seems to
have become addicted to it, and just wants it off. Anyway, I tried renaming it,
deleting it, but it just kept popping back. Is there any way to get rid of it?
What if I were to open it up in a text editor and delete a few lines, so it
would be corrupt and not run? Would that mess anything else up? Or would it just
renew itself?
Thanks,
-plh

It's easy, do it this way - go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs,
Add/Remove Windows Components, Accessories and Utilities, select
Details, select Games, then Details. Remove the tick mark from Spider
Solitaire to uninstall it.
