Where are my Games in Windows 7??

So you have just purchased a PC with Windows 7, or upgraded an existing one, go to play Spider Solitaire and "OMG Where did my games go??"

Do not fret, for some reason the games are not enabled. This may be a numbers things. Maybe less people play then don't play. We can easily enable the games.

Click on the start button.
In the Search text area type "features". This will open the the Programs and Features applet.
Click on the "Turn Windows features on or off" option.
Click on the check box for "Games" and hit apply.

There you go, all of your beloved Windows games are back.
