    Hi Hans, open Control Panel to Programs and Features and click on "Turn
    Windows Features on or off", checkmark Games and press OK. Have your Vista
    DVD in place.

    Try going to Control Panel \ Programs \ Programs and Features. Under Tasks,
    choose "Turn Windows features on or off." If "Games" is checked, uncheck
    it. Click OK. Then re-open "Turn Windows features on or off," and check
    "Games". Click OK.

    On the other hand, if "Games" is not checked when you initially open "Turn
    Windows features on or off," check it. Click OK.
