I got rid of the WildTangent games console that came on my Toshiba computer, however, the games still show up. I have carefully removed registry entries related to it(making a backup of the registry) and they still remain. I have also used Revo Uninstaller Pro and removed what it found. What am I doing wrong, I know they aren't doing me any harm, but they annoy the @!#$$ out of me.

I was under the impression Vista was supposed to automatically download game information from allgame.com and display the game's information when you click on the thumbnail? My Vista hasn't done that since I installed BF2 and I haven't been able to manually add information using VGEE because I accidentally deleted the BF2 information and haven't been able to get another games information to show up since!

A:Games folder doesn't update with information about newly installed games.

It was my understanding that only games with the "Games for Windows" tag will show up in the games folder like you are talking about. I could be wrong tho.

I am using 7 Pro & this is about the Games folder that pops-out to the right & lists all the games on the comfuser. I've done this many times before for many other games, but it's not working at all for this particular game that I'm installing for my daughter: Jumpstart 1st Grade.

This is what I have done:
1. I made a folder in the C:\ for Jumpstart 1st Grade w/game shortcuts in it.

2. I then dragged the Jumpstart 1st Grade folder into the Games folder on the Orb menu (as I've done many times before).

3. I open & search the GameUXLegacyGDFs.dll file (which I have in .txt format) for Jumpstart.

4. In the Registry, under the the Jumpstart 1st Grade folder, I change the AppExePath to the location of the game's folder.

5. Still in the Registry, I change the ApplicationId to the GameDefinitiongameID for Jumpstart (from the GameUXLegacyGDFs.dll file).

6. I then change ConfigInstallType from 4 to 3.

7. Deleted the Title String.

8. Added a new String named ConfigGDFBinaryPath & set the value toC:\Windows\system32\GameUXLegacyGDFs.dll.

9. I close the Registry & open GEF, but Windows never updates the game information. The game's pic & info never changes & when I reopen the Registry, nothing gets updated. It just stays as seen in the pic below. As I've said; I've done this many times before, it's just not working this time. Any ideas?

I have already posted a thread on this problem in Game forum, but I'm sticking one here as well in the hope for a faster response
I upgraded my Windows 98SE up to XP Pro because my PC was having a problem seeing my other PC downstairs over my small home network.
All went well and with the exception of the scanner, everything worked OK, infact better than OK, the PC was much faster and was very stable, except when I come to play my games.
Games that were running just fine before the upgrade no longer wanted to run. The intro's compe up and the game plays for about 10 seconds then either th9e PC just shuts down, Locks or at best goes back to the desktop.
I've uninstalled the Nvidea Detanator drivers, re-booted and reinstalled with no joy
Someone of worth did tell there could be a confliction with the chipset on the MB and to install the 4 in 1 drivers from www.veatech.com but didnt say how you find out what chipset I have onboard
Any help at all would be good, It's driving me mad, just want to get back to playing my games over the LAN
Thanks in advance.....My PC spec is as follows
AMD Tbird 900
512 SD RAM
PNY Verto Geforce 4 4200ti
Networked via ethernet with ADSL connection

I have 22 GameHouse games all of which I was able to play as late as about Sept 1 2014.
Now none of these games will load. I think this has been a gradual event, as opposed to all at one time.
When I attempt to run a game from either an icon or by double clicking on the EXE file there is about a 2 sec. delay while the circular "Loading" icon is shown but no further action is evident.
I have other games from Awem, Big Fish, & others which still run without problems.

My computer is an HP P7-1520t 18 months old which came with Windows 8 installed but updated to 8.1in April 2014. Since that time no major changes were made but I have installed & uninstalled some software.

I have tried the Compatibility Troubleshooter & just completed an uninstall & re-download & install of one game.
Because all the games are installed in a folder at C:/GameHouse Games I have renamed the original folder and did a new install. It regenerated the GameHouse Games folder, but it did not run. None of the games that are running are in that folder, but are in C:/Program Files (x86). About half of the games had run required the Compatibility Troubleshooter adjustment to run originally.

I would certainly appreciate any assistance that anyone can provide. I wonder if there is some Service that has been disabled.

A:Games Wont Run

Well if you have tried running the games with commbability mode as windows 7 or Windows Vista and/or with administrator rights. The only thing I can ask you, are they being blocked by your router? Some Internet providers have fun by sometimes uploading new patches for their routers. Allso, is your firewall letting em through?

Have you downloaded some application or software from gamehouse that downloads your games? Have you tried to uninstall all games and software from the site with a uninstaller program like Revo Uninstaller?

well yeh you should deffiantly fix those reg problems...it sounds like viral behaviour or some very instable reg keys...i suggest Ccleaner to scan your registry...as it is a nice stable program (its also completely free) it also makes full backups...so scan and fix the probs...

i didnt understand this bit tho "every time I have to scan every few hours, when my wireless internet connection decides to disconnect its self." did you mean your wirless disonnects then you scan the reg?? that does sound like you have either a virus and it is working away..ooor...dodgy registry...cos your not supposed to have errors that often!!! try a nice defrag too

This problem has occurred "somewhat"(I don't know when exactly) recently. I used to be able to play full screen games just fine but now (for some reason), everytime I launch a full screen game, it auto minimizes.

When I alt+tab back(or click the game icon on the task bar), it remaximizes the game but quickly gets minimized after a second.

Games play fine while in "windowed" mode(Warcraft 3, etc).. Full screen keeps minimizing.

I use Windows Vista Ultimate (64 bit):

Nvidia GeForce 8300(onboard video card).
I've done scans with Avast, Malware Bytes, and Super Antispyware and they all found nothing.

Three months ago(same system), full screen games played fine however I was on sort of a "full screen" gaming break, so I only recently tried playing full screen games like Warcraft 3 and this is when I encountered the "auto minimizes" problem.

The only major difference(between the time full screen games worked and now) is Avast 5. I upgraded from Avast 4.8 to Avast 5, other than that, there were no other major changes with the computer I am on.

Avast 5 is on Silent/Gaming mode, and I tried disabling all the shields temporarily to see if it would fix the issue but it didn't.

Does anyone have any ideas(or need anymore info that may help)? Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Hello, I try to play old and new Games on the HP ZBook 15 G2 but each time between 2 - 15 minutes the Game freezes while the sound is still playing for at least 5 minutes until I can play further. It seems like the graphics card is buffering something like on a Video stream until I can continue playing. The Games work perfectly before and after this kind of game freeze. Is this a known issue?What could be the issue? Usually Games should either lag, being slower with less fps, have screen tearing, etc. but somehow buffer a Game for minutes until it works completely fine again is new to me. The same Games work on a much less performant HP 840 G1 Notebook but of course I need to turn down the graphics options depending on the Game. What is also odd it seems in general there are issues with using ALT+TAB to get to Windows while in a Game which works fine on my other PC. Hardware: Intel Core i7-4810MQ CPU, 16GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4600 and NVIDIA Quadro K2100M What I tried:I installed the latest Windows 10 64-Bit Version with all updates, used the HP Support Assistant Tool to install every Update it found. After the issue still there I later tried to install the latest Intel Graphics Driver from the Intel website (20.19.15.4483 from July 2016), the latest Nvidia Driver from the Nvidia website from the stable branch 21.21.13.7563 from October 21st 2016. Tried to disable the internal Intel Graphics Card but e.g. Battlefield 1 is then compla...

Could anyone help me with this? I'll experience random, what seems to feel like, lag spikes, which aren't actually lag spikes while playing games. I'd be playing in offline mode against the computer and I'd have smooth gameplay for minutes before hitting this "lag spike" which would last minutes before it goes back to normal gameplay for a few minutes and then back to a lag spike, and this cycle would continue. This is for games that are extremely below my computer specs as well, so far, this has occurred with TF2 and alien swarm. my drivers are all updated, is this perhaps a software problem since problems with playing games only occurred once i went from windows XP to windows Vista months ago.

Does anyone know how to keep the Vista Games Explorer from automatically adding entries for games? I currently have a completely empty VGE and upon launching any of my games via double-clicking their exe, VGE creates a new entry once the game is closed. I already unchecked both "Download information about installed games" and "List most recently played games" in the VGE options window but that didn't help. I have a third party program that lets me add my own custom entries so obviously I'd like to add them manually so I have more control over fine details. I know that the automatically-created entries can be hidden after the fact, but that really clutters up the third party editor since it displays all games in its list, hidden or otherwise. Any thoughts?

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

So I recently (using one of the walkthroughs on this site) was able to manually remove the shortcut arrow, it worked great, but I think I may have screwed something up along the way. I use the Games folder to get to my games quickly, but after messing with removing the shortcut icons, games will no longer run from in the folder. I receive the following error when I try to load a game from the folder: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel. The only problem, these are shortcuts, there is no program associated with shortcuts, is there? Anyway can anyone tell me how to make the folder work right.

All other shortcuts outside of that folder work fine, and all the shortcuts go to the right place, and if I load the shortcut from the AppData GameExplorer folder it works fine.

So I recently put together a computer, and things seemed to be running very well.
I'm encountering a problem with RIFT and SC2 though, so I think there is a problem with my computer rather than either game individually.
When I start the RIFT launcher, everything runs smoothly until I go to press the "play" button. When I do that, it thinks for 1-2sec and my little blue wheel spins, and then it just goes back to its idle state, offering the play button again. No matter how many times i reinstall/recover, I am continually stuck here.
A list of things I have tried with the help of Trion support:
Reinstalled video drivers
Created an admin account and tried to install it from there
turned off background programs/services
sent ping/trace reports to RIFT as well as run some "task offload" commands (I have no idea what this did)

Apart from my RIFT troubles, when I go to boot up SC2, I get an error that simply says"An error occurred starting Starcraft II. Please try again."

However*, Sims 3 and Dragon Age: Origins both launch from their separate launchers, which kind of leads me to think that I have the lovely coincidence of my 2 favorite games with 2 completely different problems.

During my hours spent pouring over forums and such, I have found very few solutions to my problems.

I don't know if this means anything, but extra information can only help right?
When I run the RIFT application from my RIFT Game folder, I get a message that says:... Read more

How many ram do you have? Actually the intel graphic onboard video card is not really good for newer games. You'll need to buy a decent card that can play games with no lag.

Just got new computer. Re-installing games (Medal of Honor and RTCW) and keep getting bad vertical lines when graphics come up so that I cannot see the graphics.
When I try and play from CD, and main room comes on, screen is all screwed up. Cannot see anything with all the lines.
This is a brand new computer (Dell XPS w/WinXP Media Edition, 3.2G processor and 1G RAM). These games worked fine on my 5 year old computer with XP Home.
EA tech support has had me close all processes (under my user name) and all apps and that still has not solved the problem. Uninstalled and re-installed several times with no success. Set up a new user with full administrator authority and installed there, but still no help.

Does anyone have any ideas???

hey everyone,

I recently felt the need to clean my pc up and i decided to format it
and put a new Windows on it (Windows 7 Proffesional).
However, once i installed Windows, i went on and installed the drivers
for my gfx card (ATI HD 3870x2) along with the rest.
Then i started to install my games, i went with CoD:BO and WoW at first.
After the install there were no problems. BUT, as soon as i reboot my pc
after installing the games, the games wont start up at all. They just freeze
at the black screen while trying to change resolutions. When it freezes, my
"loading" mouse cursor freezes too, and so is my whole pc. No key combination
works any longer. So i have to manually reboot. Occasionally i get a BSOD
when starting a game up but not always. Have you guys have any idea as of
what could cause this? Because im kinda in the dark here. The weird part for me
is that it all works fine untill i reboot after installing a game. I tried to format 4
more times, with 3 different windows versions with no luck. Please HELP!

specs:
Windows 7 Professional (32-bits)
Intel Quad-core q6600
ATI Radeon HD 3870 x2
4096mb RAM

* Dxdiag also attached

need any other info, feel free to ask

Hello all, I am seriously crash coursing through windows 8 right now, and cant seem to find many useful tutorials specific to all the glory that is windows 8.

I literally just upgraded my laptop, maybe a lil to excessively, darn pretty lights... so with it comes new 8... it seems like all the aps on the main screen work, but I cant get some of the game aps to work. I did the whole xbox set up thing, and downloaded/bought one of their games... and tried few free app games. maybe out of 4 of the free ones work, and the one I actually paid for didn't.

When I click on the app button thing, the splash screen pops up for good 2 seconds, then back to the tile start page. I tried to find the .exe, but cant... and like I said I tested all the other icons and they seem to be good to go.

I've just upgraded to XP Pro from 98SE because there were too many problems with it networking to my PC downstairs. Once upgraded the two PC's connected just fine and the XP OS environment was very stable indeed, everything works better than ever......except all my games
Uninstalled the NVidea Detonator drivers, rebooted, no change, everytime I go to play a game the intro loads and the game plays for about 10 secs then the PC just either turns off or goes back to the desktop or lock up.
Its an old machine with a TBird AMD 900 and 512 SD RAM and a PNY Verto Geforce 4 4200ti AGP card. But everything played just fine before the upgrade...so what happened.
Someone told me it may be a confliction with the MB chipset and to install the 4 in 1 driver from veatech.com, but they didnt say how to find out which chipset I have onboard.
I also nitice there is a small amount of V Sync over the monitor that wasn't there before, relevent, maybe.
Any help that anyone could offer would be good, just want to get back to playing on the LAN
Thanks in advance, and I will reply to mailers ....cheers

I have taken some steps already, in the hope of resolving this myself -
I used Driver Cleaner 3 in safe mode after uninstalling nvidia drivers, used the cab cleaner as well, rebooted in normal mode, and re-installed nvidia drivers 93.71.

Should I be trying to install older drivers? If yes, where can i get some older drivers?

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

Motherboard: p5n32-e sli nforce 680i chipset

A:BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005


Code:
ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

I am completely new to Windows 8 since I installed it today, and when I went into the X-Box games app, I couldn?t see any of my purchased games from GFWL, what gives? It would only seem logical or doesn?t it?

A:X-Box Games app and Games for Windows Live account merge?

Well, yeah I was hoping that would happen but at this time there is no merging yet but maybe in the future.
The Xbox games app shows your profile and scores and that is about it. I figure the reason is the games you bought are not Metro Apps which still uses a Client. Maybe the Client would be updated to Xbox Games instead since the client is not in the metro app thing.

I can say the Client works:

Since i bought this rig a year ago i haven't been able to play any games that runs on the valve engine(half life 2, css, portal etc) more than a few seconds and then the comp reboots.
With Bf2 i can play max 30 minutes and Bf2142 maybe one hour then they crash exactly the same way as Valve games..
All other games i have tried runs without any problem, even the more demanding such as Crysis, Far Cry 2 and Dark Athena.

Cpu temp is at full load 60c and gpu is at full load 70c, i added an extra fan to the gfx and set the fan to 80%. nothing is overclocked.
I tried with diffrent memorys, changed hdds, reinstalled a bunch of times, reinstalled windows xp 32bit, maybe 10 diffrent nvidia drives, also changed settings for the sound card but none of that made any diffrence.
Havent been able to test with other gfx.

I have installed a ton of games using a spare drive which is F drive and it is a 1tb drive so the games are installed to the F drive and not C drive. what would be the scheme to backup the F drive so that i do not have to install all my games all over again? i have acronis as my backup or symantec backup exec. thanks

A:backup scheme for OS and games folder

I'd back up F with an imaging application.

Make a new full image periodically--say every week or month. Store the image on some totally different drive, possibly external.

If F fails, restore the most recent image to a replacement F.

Acronis should work for that, although it isn't what I'd personally choose.

If not you can look through your user account folder for a games folder or any folder that has the game name or publisher name.

Does anyone know how to delete link shortcuts out of the "Games" folder on Windows 8? I put a link shortcut in there by accident and it got stuck in there. I can't delete it or anything.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I have several games installed to the "games" folder that came with vista, but when i try to find the program folder for any of the games i can find some of them, but others i can't. not sure if it is because of the "games" folder or because of something else that i am not realizing, but all the games do seem to installed into that folder and not like their own.
(i want to find the folder to games like World of Warcraft or Warhammer online so i can install add-ons to them)

Oh and if the games folder is the issue, is there a way to get rid of the games folder?

thanks for any help,
Rick

I have recently tried to install Deer Hunter 4 and Hoyle Casino '99 and both get the same error message it is as follows:"C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.", then it gives me the option to 'Close' or 'Ignore'. Close ends the program and ignore does nothing. I haven't had this problem with any other programs. Also I had recently installed "service pack 2" so i tried uninstalling that, that didn't work either. Also tried setup from the disk itself that also didn't work. My comp specs are:

Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 1 (2600.xpsp1.020828-1920)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)

DX Setup Parameters: Not found
DxDiag Version: 5.03.0001.0904 32bit Unicode

I cant figure out what the problem is and the Microsoft website was no help. So I searched the Internet for help nd found this site. So PLEASE if anyone has any ideas or any helpful info send it my way.
Thanks, Jake

My 1-year old custom build desktop wont play games such as TF 1/2, Portal 1/2, Half Life 1/2, and other games running the half life engine, or similar engines like Call of Duty/Minecraft etc.
I have a radeon HD 3450 graphics card, but if I install the one driver that makes it work, it reduces the screen size. not resolution, but size. It takes about 3/4 an inch off the top, and an inch off the sides. I need it to stay to the sides, because I have a small TV, and I use it as a media center in my room, so any smaller, and i cant see. I am running Win8 Pro x64, with 12gb ram, and amd Phenom II x4 955 3.4 ghz. Help!

A:Desktop wont play any 3D games?

what driver are you using? if you want max compatibility, I would install the legacy 13.1 catalyst suite EXCEPT for the video driver. then use the Microsoft ATI WDDM v1.1 driver that comes with Windows 8. driver date: 6/19/2012. version: 8.97.10.6.

the newer drivers that come with the Legacy packages break a lot of Windows 8 apps.

Hi,

About a week ago the games on my Windows 7 PC stopped working, Solitaire, Hearts etc.

When I click "Games" I see the game icons but left or right clicks do nothing. I have tried disabling/re-enabling games in "Turn windows features on/off" but that didn't work.

Any help much appreciated :)

A:Built in games wont load

Go to Start/Search and type CMD, right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing system files.

Hi guys! I got a real problem on my hands... my mom moved my computer when she was cleaning up around it, and now it seems that all my games/music wont execute! When I double click on a game, it gives the loading screen, but then just stays there forever, and Ihave to press ctrl alt del and then it says in parentheses next to the me name, program not responding..

btw when y mom moved the computer, I had to reinstall the graphics driver because the computer wouldnt go above 16 bit resolution, which sucked. Maybe that has something to do with it?

Anyways, thanks guys!!

Okay I have signed up for the pogo games. And now I cant load the games. They just stay on the loading screen but never run. I have followed all the steps pogo support has given but still no use. One thing I am unsure of is if I have a firewall that is blocking these games from loading. Could someone please help me with this. I really would like to play

Thanks in advance!

What in the hell is going in here? I right click and uninstall, they go away but the icon comes back. If I click on them they don't even open. Anyway to get these to go away? They are just annoying to look at. I've ran all the powershell commands I can find that relate to this.

Any ideas?

I recently installed a few older games and they dont seem to want to run after installation. I've updated them with their patches but usually I get an error right after the initial screen saying it has encountered a problem and needs to close down.

These three games are Undying, Alice, and No one lives forever 1. They all seem to be closely related when they launch. I wonder what the deal could be... maybe I am missing something minor. I have the latest drivers for my vid card, and latest directx.

If you have any ideas let me know.

You may have removed things like shockwave, activeX etc...when you go to the sites, it should tell you what you need in order to play, and direct your to download/install it.
