Goldy ~ In Win. 7...Click on "Start" > "All Programs" and scroll through the list. "Games" should be about halfway down the list.
Click on "Games" and Spider Solitaire will be listed therein. As a matter of fact, I was on my way there when I saw your question.

Enjoy!

Sorry, Goldy. I didn't realize your were using Win 8. Try the download at the Cnet link below. And...if that doesn't meet your needs...just enter "Spider Solitaire" at Google and you should see a wide selection.

Again...enjoy!

Gotta be super careful downloading those card games cause they'll load you up with unwanted stuff - toolbars etc. Just downloading may result in babylon and funmode being installed. Before you even start the game installation. !!!!!

I hated the W7 games so transferred the XP games to W7 this way which should work for 7 to 8:

find a friend with XP or 7 if you don't have one yersef.

Contol panel > folder options > check 'show hidden folders'

navigate to C:\Windows\System32

Copy the following files to a USB memory stick, or CD (whatever means you have to move files):
cards.dll
freecell.exe
mshearts.exe
sol.exe
spider.chm
spider.exe
spider.hlp
winmine.exe

Create a Desktop Folder and paste all that into that folder

(do not put it in the Windows\system32 folder)

Launch the games from there or make a desktop shortcut.

Uncheck 'show hidden folders'
