    Steps for re-installing games on Windows XP

    While I was repairing the broken files on my PC running on Windows XP, I have accidentally deleted all the games that come with Windows XP. I need to re-install all those games. What should I do for that?

    Press the ‘Start’ button on the desktop and wait until the start menu pop up on the screen. After that, you need to select ‘Control Panel’ from the start menu. Once you can view the ‘Control Panel’ window, click on ‘Add or Remove Programs’ icon available on it. Then, go to the left pane and click the ‘Add/Remove Windows Components’ option. This will bring up ‘Add/Remove Windows Components’ wizard having a list of options on the screen. Locate ‘Accessories and Utilities’ from that list and click the check box next to it. Press the ‘Next’ option afterwards and click on the ‘Finish’ button. On doing so, all games will be restored into your system.

    Hi,

    So far your problem of deletion of all games installed are concern you can take a couple of routes.

    One, you can restore all deleted games if you have not tweaked with those installation further after deleting them.

    Use the following method to do so :

    Control Panel > Add/Remove Program > Add/Remove Windows Components > Accessories and Utilities > check in it > Next > Finish, and as many successfull recovery as possible following the undisturbed footprint present in the storage media , by the Windows recovery method.

    The next method is re-installation, you can re-install all games you had if you have Installation disquettes of them or you can download from internet if they are free or if you agree to buy them from the developers.

    Insert the CD/DVD in the optical drive and click Setup/Install whichever option you are offered and the games each of them will be installed.

    Same thing with the download, after downloading you will be offered option Setup/Install click and answer the query of the installer and it will be done.

    Thanks.

    Re: Steps for re-installing games on Windows XP

    Dear friend,

    Installing games on the Xp is much easier than anything else on Xp.

    Just start the setup file.

    Follow the instructions and accept the Terms and Conditions and then finally install Games.

    Most of the games work fluently in Windows Xp due to its compatibility with most of the games.
