No Games (like Solitaire) in Start Menu
Just finished a clean install of Win7 Pro. Haven't installed anything else yet, just looking around. There are no games, such as solitaire, in the Start Menu. There is a Games folder, but I think that's for online games. Where are all the usual games?

What's the best way to backup on Windows 7?
I have a laptop running Windows 7 that I share with my wife. I want to back up her User Files, My User Files and the Public User Files, pictures, videos, music, etc. I have a 250 GB WDPassport Portable Hard Drive that I use to back up to.

The total space shown on the Portable hard drive is 233 GB with Free Space of 213 GB.

Total file sizes to backup are as follows:
Wife 2.32 GB
Me 24.7 GB
Public 76.1 GB

I used to use Karen's Replicator to copy and, sync files but I found that because it kept the backed up files that I had deleted from the original directories. I tried using Windows backup but after letting it run all night, it told me that my total back up file size was 95 GB and that there wasn't enough room on the backup drive.

I don't know, if I have 213 GBof Free Space, it seems like 95 ought to fit in there twice, with room left over.

(I also used to use Sync Toy but we had an, almost, disaster, at work. We had made a bunch of file folder changes to a shared directory, so I deleted the directory from the backup drive, to"start over", and instead Sync Toy, seeing the files deleted from the backup, deleted them from the original.)

I do like the idea of being able to backup files in their native format, not have some wadded up ball of data that has to be "restored". What is the best way to do this? Free? It doesn't seem like it should be this hard.

Restoring deleted files (empty recycle bin)?
So I had accidentally made a shortcut to a very important file, and without realizing it, I deleted the main file. I want to know if there is anyway to restore deleted files (after emptyingthe recycle bin) without downloading a program? I cannot afford to buy a program for that right now.

I did, however, find that my computer does still have all the files in the $Recycle.Bin, and I'm able to get to the area, but I want to know if I can restore the files in there by myself.

Batch File to turn on and off broadband
A while back I asked for assistance in turning my Win 7 Broadband on and off, I got some guidance about desktop Batch files to get the job done and installed my very 1st batch files. They worked great till yesterday and for whatever reason I could not turn broadband off.

I deleted the disable batch and redid it and still no success. I did a reboot after that install and that did not help.

So I decided to leave it alone till this morning shut down the PC and when I fired it up this morning both enable and disable batch file were back working as they should.

I'm not use to this because when Murphy's law slaps me I usually stay slapped for a longer period of time.

What is The Recycle Bin?
The Recycle Bin is a folder with a fancy icon where files and folders that you have deleted are stored. They have not been permanently removed from your hard drive(s), they were only "moved" to this special folder. To put it simply: the Recycle Bin is the place where the references towards your deleted files and folders are kept.


Old windows games won't run on Windows 7
I love the old games of Freespace and Minesweeper, the ones that came out (probably?) with Win98. With Vista came new "sytlized-up" versions that I don't like--they are too fancy, harder to read, are missing some handy play features.

So, I blindly tried copying the old .exe files onto the Vista computer, did the same with cards.dll, and was pleased to see that they ran just fine. I did the same with an XP computer. This was great!

64-bit, running Windows 7 (64-bit), and I find that these applications will not run. In fact NONE of my old favorite (MS) games will run. I get an error sayingthat the files are incompatible with the current OS.

I'm guessing this means I can't run the 32-bit applications on the 64-bit computer, but why should this matter? or should I just give it up?


Laptop won't recognize cd/dvd drive
My daughter's laptop has deleted the driver for the CD/DVD drive, and I think it happened after an automatic Windows 7 update. when we put a music or video disk in the drive, it spins (machine is trying to read it) but then after 60-90 seconds nothing happens.

The drive doesn't appear in the Device Manager, and I'm not sure how to get it back. I have a spare drive which I swapped in, just in case it was a hardware failure, but still nothing happens.
