How did you lose the Solitaire program in your computer?
I was trying to get my printer to work and could not find a way to fix it so
I started deleting some old things in the computer and the next thing i knew it
Ok. What version of Windows are you using?
XP? Vista? 7?
the game were gone too and I don't rember whish things i deleted.
Ok.. Please do these:
1. Click Start => Settings => Control Panel2. Click the item: Add or Remove Programs3. In the left panel, click the 3rd entry named: Add/Remove Windows Components4. In the components' list, under Accessories and Utilities, click Details5. There you should see Games
Make sure that Games is checked and click OK
Then click NEXT
Then Windows should re-install all games that are previously loaded
Any instrustions can you e-mail me @ [email protected] because i still don't have working printer to use
You can just view this conversation anytime...
Please try the steps above...
It is asking for a xp home ed. cd-rom to be used what i have is a mc office professional cd
Oh ok... You really need the XP CD to get the games loaded.. DO you have the XP CD Installer?
I am sorry i don/t know what that is
It is a CD or Compact Disc that is labeled as Windows XP. You have that disc if you bought the disc and install XP yourself. But when your PC came with XP pre-loaded, there should also be a re-installation disc there...
I got this computer from a friend and they don't have any cd left from the sell can i get adownload from microsoft to help inthis problem?
would it be better to have the computer scrubbed and have a place like Office Depot put in a program for me?
Well, Windows XP is no longer available for download in MS site now... You can just borrow an XP disc for this purpose only...
What do you mean? Do you have a lot of problems with your computer? Or this solitaire is the only problem?
Please try SYSTEM RESTORE then...

You should use the restore point with a date when you still don't have the problem you are facing now.Important: You need to check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points available in your system.
I went back to12/15/10 and it didn't change a thing
Ok... So the only way to restore the deleted program is to re-install it from the XP disc...
You can just borrow an XP disc and proceed with the steps I gave you above and it shall re-install the Games folder
Also, you can try downloading a free solitaire game and see if it works
Thanks for all your help I will try the free download first.
Yes... It looks great... However, that is a separate program that is not a part of the MS XP so you can enjoy it if you love solitaire game
