    I recently installed the demo for the game Cities XL on windows 7. For some reason when I check the games box in windows explorer all the shortcuts for my other games and all the Windows games are missing except for the cities XL demo shortcut. Can any one help me out here?

    Hi Shabz,
    try checking that the games have some how become unchecked in the 'Turn windows features on or off' section of the control panel..

    thanks man that worked! But I can only see the original Windows games now, the other games i've got like the Sims and GTA don't have shortcuts. I Have the game cd's so do i have to reinstall my games so they appear again?

    If you open the games explorer you should be able to drag and drop a launch icon from your start menu/desktop (thats what I do anyway) or if need be, open up the actual game folder in your C drive and find the launch icon that way.
