Can't access Windows Games

A friend of mine has Windows XP Professional and when I went onto 'Add or Remove Windows Components' there was no box for selecting Games. I tried to instal them from my Windows XP Home disk, but couldn't even find them on that disk.

So how should I go about installing the games on her PC? - BTW she lost the XP professional disk.

Add remove.

Turn windows features on or off.

Wait for it to load then make sure games is ticked .

@Buteman that's exactly what I did, but the games option never appeared on screen.

@rdave13 thanks for the link - this may well be the solution to the prob.
