Re-create the shortcut to Spider Solitaire, along with anything else you need. The applications themselves are stored in C:\Windows\System32. Once you find the files you need (for example, Spider Solitaire would be named "spider.exe"), just create a shortcut as you would normally, then slap it on the desktop, or back in the Start menu, whichever you prefer.

Just don't mess around with anything else in that folder. Keep a wary eye on your finger's proximity to the "Delete" key. ;)

Yeah, it was kinda questionable on Microsoft's part to put the game files in with all the critical system files... =/
