Default 30 of my games just disappeared from

30 of my games just disappeared from game explorer. There still on the hard drive and work. I just started game explorer and they were gone. Why? Does everyone here know why this happen?

Thanks grey_1 but I just tried to create a new users account and it doesn't create the account.

Are you logged in as admin? That one I've never heard of before and admin privileges are the only thing I can think of.

EDIT: I found one thread where the user installed pcanywhere and lost the ability to create new accounts. He had to do a system restore and uninstall the pcanywhere. No other details than that though.

I found games explorer to be completely useless. Never found an instance where it actually showed all installed games.
