Windows Games

It was the same in XP already, now in Vista again, and it seems to be in
almost all the games that are included in Windows.

1) When closing a game in progress, it asks you to save the game.
When you finish the game later on, the saved game remains and every time you
open the game, it asks you if you want to continue the saved game, no matter
how often you have finished that game already.

2) When losing a game, and you just don´t feel like going all the way back,
or the game doesn´t let you go back, just close and save it, reopen, answer
"no" to continue the saved game, and the statistics will for all time give
you 100% wins.

Now the games are quite well programmed, hard to believe the programmers
could have made two so obvious blunders upon saving games, so what am I
doing wrong, or how to fix this?
Only 1/2 workaround I found is never close a game at its end, but always
upon first move of next game and save it there, so at least the saved game
will always be the current one.

Just delete the save game from <Your name>\Saved Games. You can also
right-click on the game in the Games Explorer and choose Saved Games to get
there too.

Well some games you can undo, which will decrease your score. Unlike
reloading the save, which some might call cheating. ;-)
