I have 4 new computers coming into an industrial environment on a new
machine. I want to remove all of the resident Microsoft computers games that
come with Windows XP.

That's OK with us; it's standard practice in a professional/corporate
environment. Go right ahead and remove the games.

I have followed the recommended procedure numerous times, but Freecell just keeps reappearing. I've tried deleting the executable file also, but it just reappears. I have checked the box, unchecked the box, every possible configuration. I wouldn't worry about it except that the boss said "Get rid of it!" Wish I knew how!

Yes! I know! But what do you do when that DOESN'T WORK? I have uninstalled them, deleted the .exe file, and it just comes right back about ten seconds later. I wouldn't worry about it except that these computers are in an industrial control system and the boss wants them (the games) GONE. I need to keep him happy!
