    In post #12 the OP mentioned an offline version. I don't know if that's what he wanted or thought he would be forced to put up with.

    I found the original XP games and they scan clean both locally and at Virustotal.
    I've just uploaded them to Dropbox, and here is the link...

    Dropbox - Games.zip - Simplify your life
    I've just had a look at that games.zip and compared it with my versions copied direct from an XP machine. The good news is that they all seems to be the originals and are clean.

    However, there are some changes/deletions I would suggest.

    The Pinball game would have originally been in a Pinball folder on its own. If you'd like to separate it out these are all the files for Pinball.
    Code:
    G:\>dir "Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball"
     Volume in drive G has no label.
     Volume Serial Number is 04D8-88A5
    
     Directory of G:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball

    There are a lot of files with an extension ending in _, eg pinball.ch_

    This extension usually indicates the files are compressed, but not in this case. They have been expanded but have not been renamed. That pinball.ch_ should be renamed to pinball.chm (and moved to the Pinball folder if you decide to make one) then Help will work in Pinball.

    All the rest of the *.*_ files are either duplicates (eg. the freecell.ex_/freecell.exe pair) or they are for the defunct MSN Game Zone games (eg. chkrzm.ex_ is the .exe for the (now dead) Checkers game in post #16)

    None of the *.hlp files will work in Win10, but as they all have a *.chm twin that's no problem. All the *.*_ and *.hlp files are of no use and can be deleted, in fact they add up to about two thirds of the total file size.
