The Microsoft Vista operating system, as well as all Microsoft operating systems for non-professional users, contain the standard Microsoft games. One popular Microsoft game is Solitaire. If you play a lot of Solitaire in Vista, your history and statistics will become very cluttered and eventually meaningless. Unfortunately, Microsoft does not provide a way to reset your statistics, as well as reset the game of Solitaire, back to its defaults. Create a simple text file and execute it as a batch file in Vista to reset Solitaire back to its default settings and remove all history and statistics.
