Reinstalling Windows Games
We use nLite to build our PC images and we have a standard image that we deploy out across the school. Because most of the PCs are standard student desktops, I have removed the games component using nLite. So you cannot reinstall it using Add/Remove Programs.
So, on to the problem. We have a friendly site supervisor who mans the reception pretty late on some days for late evening let ins. He would like to be able to keep from total boredom by being able to have the odd game of Spider Solitare, Minesweeper etc. Is there anyway I can reinstall the games components without having to totally rebuild the PC?

just copy the exe's from a system that has them.

Go to Control Panel -> Add & Remove Programs -> Windows Components -> Accesories and Utilities -> Details -> Tick Games.
edit: You'll probably need an XP disc with the games.

Yeah as said above, just use an original XP disc with the games on or just copy the games from another PC with them on. Should take about 5 mins
