Solitaire

Some how, my Solitaire game was erased from my computer. I restarted my computer several times, thinking maybe it might pop back up, but to no avail. My next step was attempting a system restore the last day that I knew I played Solitaire, but it didn't come back up. Any ideas on how I can get it back or find it? I don't have my disc here...

Might try removing games from the add/remove > windows components. Then add em back in.

Can I add them back in without the disc? All of my non-online games are gone from my start menu. The only original one left is that 3d pinall, but I moved it to my desktop. This computer isn't connected to the internet either. It's in my dorm room and I use it only for music, watching movies, and occasionally killing time with Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, or Pinball.

Try this:

Start > Run type %SystemRoot%\system32\sol.exe

and hit enter. Does solitair start? If so, you've simply lost your shortcuts and can make new ones. If not, then you will need your CD (or i386 folder if it's been copied to your hard drive, good practice to adhere to) and do what I said above.
