"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Or uninstall it.  

The user can still reinstall it though and if you choose the rename option they can always rename it back to the correct name.

Go to Control Panel - Programs and Features (or Add/Remove Programs, depending on which Windows version you're using).    Then click on "Turn Windows features on or off" -- and you can remove the Games [or just selective ones such as Minesweeper if that's all you want to do]
you can delete the folder , or rename it from Program Files>Microsoft Games
