  1. Disk Cleanup doesn’t work. To reset games statistics on Windows 7 go to the following:

    C:/Users/Login Name/AppData/Local/Microsoft Games. Then delete the folders to the games you wish to reset.

    Note: AppData is a hidden folder so type the path or else set computer to view hidden folders and names.
