RE: Spider Solitare

I have a link that I've used for years and no problem. I don't play spider solitaire, but golf solitaire.

When you open the link you'll see spider solitairs.

Again, no problem for me. My server is AOL.

Windows 8 doesn't come with them preloaded but you can get the same package of games that was on the previous versions of Windows. Below is a link telling about this and where they are in the windows game store for free.

RE: Spider Solitare

you can do this from windows 8 tiles, but I will just give the link right to the windows game store for you. pick what you want, spider solitaire is there as you can see along with many others. This is a safe location from Microsoft.

be extremely careful getting free games from online sites that is one of the top methods of infection. Be sure to have Wot installed on your browser before searching random sites so you can see if they are rated safe or not. Wot comes for all browsers pick the right one to install.

And the eightforums are excellent you can learn everything from there.

Glenda that one is Ok since it's played online and not downloaded. I think it might be the same site my husband uses.

RE: Spider Solitare

RE: Spider Solitare

Some things is wrong if you are not able to get the games directly from the Microsoft game store, it should be a simple click on the selected game and install, now you will get a pop up warning that is part of the uac but it should just be you authorized it to be installed on your pc. There's no reason why any antivirus programs would balk at the Microsoft games they are made for windows. I think you have

some thing seriously wrong with the Norton. It is definitely not a favorite of mine once I got rid of it years ago I won't ever use it again, to each their own.
I really don't understand the problem with the one Glenda gave, you just play it online it isn't even a download.

RE: Spider Solitare

I guarantee you this site is safe, my husband has been playing on it for years every single day and I have played on it often and you know I would never be going to any site that is dangerous in any way and it has a great wot rating. If anything says this one is bad then you have a problem on your computer that is affecting what is going on with the AV. Have you run an updated malwarebytes scan if not I would sure do that.

go here and try this site you can choose to change the game they have many options.

RE: Spider Solitare

What kind of success rate do you have while playing, Goldy (and others)?

I think that I run about 12% ... about 2% on Minesweeper ... and nearly 95% on Freecell.
