Freecell game frozen

I am not much of a computer person...e-mail and a few games.  I have a Presario SR5350F with Vista that was installed before purchase. My Freecell has some sort of glitch.  There is one set of cards that appears halfway between any usual location and they cannot be moved as in a normal fashion.  This happens each time I try to use the game.  Can I uninstall and reinstall from my backup discs?

Re: Freecell game frozen

To restore or reinstall the Games in Windows Vista, follow these steps:

  1. Go into the Control Panel by clicking on Start – Settings – Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel, double click on Programs and Features.
  3. In the Programs and Features window, click on the Turn Windows features on or off link in the left column.
  4. In the Windows Features window, just check the box next to the Games folder, which should be right at the top. This will reinstall all the games. If you only want to install certain ones, click the + sign next to the folder and then check the individual games you want, and then uncheck the rest.
  5. After you have selected your games, just click OK and let them load. You should now be able to click on Start – Programs and see the Games folder back on the menu.
