missing games in XP

I just reinstalled the O/S using HP'S recovery disc. Had a clean install. Now all of the games in the game folder are missing. I did a search and can find none of them.
Can someone tell me how to get the games installed back into the game folder? Without having to reinstall the O/S again.


If you are talking about the inbuilt games in Windows XP then go to the following location and search for the games.


You will get the games there.

eg. look out for freecell, mshearts etc.

Copy the games from there and paste it in this location

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Games
