If you don't want them, simply delete them. Create a GPO with a computer startup script (batch file) that contains the following:
rd /s /q "%ProgramFiles%\MSN Gaming Zone"
rd /s /q "%ProgramFiles%\Windows NT\Pinball"
del /f /s "%SystemRoot%\system32\winmine.exe"
del /f /s "%SystemRoot%\system32\freecell.exe"
del /f /s "%SystemRoot%\system32\mshearts.exe"
del /f /s "%SystemRoot%\system32\sol.exe"
del /f /s "%SystemRoot%\system32\spider.exe"
rd /s /q "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Games"

Oops, in the script above, replace the "del /f /s" with "del /f /q"
