    Hi there

    You need to re-install it again -- download the MSI from the dropbox account and simply re-install again.

    Jimbo, have you tried the games on the AU edition ?

    I clean installed the AU and found a problem with the games not working correctly. A bit of searching turned up the original W7/Vista games as being available from Winaero:

    Get Windows 7 games for Windows 10

    Be sure to only click the link for the games. I found these worked for both 32 and 64 bit installs of AU.

    I noticed that after playing Freecell Two Deck (Italian version) on Win 10 Pro 1607 64 bit the system slows down and many windows (expecially confirmation windows) appear blank for much time.
    Restarting the system solves the problem.
    My only modification to the standard system is moving Internet temporary Files from disk C (SSD) to a secondary HD.
