I have a new dell pc that was preinstalled with w7. I've had it for a week now, and today the games have decided not to run. I get 'executable for .... game as stopped."

Anyone know how to fix this?

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi kim & welcome to Windows 7 Forums

As your games were working have you installed any new software prior to your games not working ?

mirc is a chat client and may be your problem, you could uninstall it and just see if your games will work, if they don't we can go another route.
