Removing Games from Windows 2000 Components

I have only one system that I can not remove the games from, having removed them from over 30 PC's.  I have edited the Sysoc file and removed the word "hide"from this PC and also the "old base components" line does not exist on this PC. I am ready to wipe the drive at this point but that is not an option. OS is WIN2K SP4 with all updates. HELP!!!

Thanks in advance

But you can try to remove them through the registry.

Have you tried through start-control panel-add/remove programs-add/remove windows components?

I am not familiar with removing them after installation, but you can add a line to your answer file in an unattended installation to instruct Windows to not install the games.

hehewithbrackets,
     Add/remove components is exactly the problem. The sysoc.inf file controls what is available in this. Standard install of WIN2k hides this. I removed the word hide as I have always done and still to no avail. Thanks for trying. I may just wipe the OS and start over but really, really hate to do that. Maybe we will just fire the guy playing games... Thanks again.

As netnub stated earlier, the built-in games are not available to add/remove by default.
