Fresh Windows Installation but not games

Fresh Windows Installation but not games
Views: 21
I just installed Win 7 Pro, and when I go out to the Games Explorer, there are no games
listed. I've turned off some Win 7 services for security and I'm wondering if there is a
specific service which is required to run games.

How to Uninstall Windows 10 and Downgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1

Preview
Don’t like Windows 10? As long as you’ve upgraded within the last month, you can uninstall Windows 10 and downgrade your PC back to its original Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 operating system. You can always upgrade to Windows 10 again later. Even if it’s been more than a month, you should be able to reinstall the version of Windows that came with your PC using fresh installation media and its product key.

Saved Games - Help?

Preview
I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on my 1TB hard drive, and have Windows XP 32-bit on my other 300GB Hard drive.
I am in the process of reinstalling / moving my games over to Windows 7 from XP.
Now this may be tough to answer, and may depend on the game, but:
Where do I put my saved games?!
I have 2 "sets" of saved games from XP; The ones that were in My Documents, and the ones that were in My Games.
Where would I put them so they work on Windows 7?
So far I have tried putting them in:
User/My Documents
User/Saved Games
User/My Documents/My Games
None of these so far have worked for the games I've installed / moved.
I can list the games I'm moving / installing if needed.

Windows 7 : unable to play online games

Preview
In my office there is a Windows 7 PC that all of a sudden stopped being able to play games online. Games act like they load but then stop. Games on Facebook on just simple games like Freecell out on the web. Also any video that pops up in a separate window.

We have ESET antivirus, I have also run Spybot, and Anti-Malware. I have checked the browser for add-ons and have found none. This happens in all browsers. We mainly use Mozilla. Therehave been no other changes to this PC, the network, or the UTM in our office.
