             Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs. Then click Add/remove windows components. You can uninstall any built-in component here by unchecking its box next to it.

...you may have to "unhide" some of those components, though.  This article describes the process:

                Hi healthcheckinc
               You dont need that file. Just simply go to your control panel as i mentioned above. Then click details while you are on accessories and utilities then click accessories, click details then uncheck the box next to games. Games will be uninstalled.

"I dont have a SYSOC.INF file in my windows folder"

Just for future reference, it is actually within the INF subfolder...

%systemdrive%\WINDOWS\INF
