Why didn't you say so!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, The default games that come with Win98, 2000, etc, such as Solataire, Minesweeper, etc... Are all one file Games. They are located in the WINDOWS folder under the C: Drive. The size of each game is only about 300 kb, making them very easy to copy, and duplicate. Because each game is only one file, and these are very small, your student most likely made several copies of the game, and distributed them across the harddrive. Searching for the game file name won't do you any good, because the he/she probably renamed each file. So, If you search you hard drive for the game name, you most likely won't find it. There is however a way to get around this problem. Now, these default card games are all EXE files (meaning they have a .exe extention). Here is what you have to do:
Instead of searching for the game name, you are going to search your computer for ALL .EXE Files in your computer. In the Search Window, instead of typing the game name in the search field, Type in: *.exe
You will get a big list of results.
Each one of the "Windows Embedded" Games has its own Icon/picture/Logo. You will need to quickly browse the list of results for these game icons. If you see a file that for example has a "Deck Of Cards" Icon, meaning it is the game, Delete the file.
This way, you should be able to find the game, and delete it.
HOWEVER..........your student could have thought ahead, and changed the actual Icon of the game file.
If so, All I can tell you is good luck finding the file. (You can look through the administrative file history) in the computer to see all the files that have been executed for the past few days, but this can get a little confusing.
Try What I told you first.
Hope this Helps.
