Did I Screw Something Up Or..... Where are my games (Windows 7)?

  1. I just installed a copy of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Imagine my surprise when I found NO games in the game folder! I shall miss Spider Solitare dearly with this version.

    Is this because it's a "Professional" edition, and perhaps corporate entities don't want their employees frittering away their time playing it? Is it someplace else?

    Well, it was 140 bucks....! And, it still has Media Center, now there's a time waster for sure. Hm, perspiring minds want to know.

    Yeah Well, I Got the PC Put Together, That Should Count for Something....

    You're a genius. That said, I got the games to work with "God Mode", promptly lost two in a row, and am now considering turning them off again.

    That was rude of M$, not to mention embarrassing. In retaliation, if I'm asked, I will absolutely not say, "I'm a PC, and Windows 7 was my idea"! :eek:

    Or Should I Take What's Behind Door Number Three.....?

    OK, so I got the games turned on, now my question is, "should I now consider myself an IT professional, since this is the type of thing they do all day", or throw myself on the mercy of the website and resort to a diminished capacity, (insanity), defense. Here >> (o_o) << you can insert a "smiley", but try to imagine one with a blank stare, glassy eyes, and perhaps picking its nose.. :rolleyes: :wave:

    "I'm a PC, but I'm clueless as to whose idea Windows 7 was".

    captain, you may be on to something. I definitely like the sound of your "smiley" ("vacant-y" ?) - sounds like one non-emoticon I would probably (over)use.
