1) In the control panal, navigate to 'Add/Remove Programs.'

2) Once in there, click the 'Add/Remove Windows Components' on the left margin.

3) Highlight 'Accessories and Utilities' and click 'Details' button

4) Check the 'Games' tab

5) Adjust any other options that fit your fancy, click 'next' and enjoy

Sounds to me like just the shortcuts in the start menu got deleted. Do what One4yu2c said but you may have to uninstall them if they already have a checkmark in the box and then reinstall them. That might be easier than trying to find the exe's and making shortcuts to put back in the start menu.
