    Read the forum rules.

    I can't help you anyway, because I can't understand what it is you're saying...

    For example, I know what "If you are any" means, and I hate having to figure out IF U R N E means...

    Oh, it also probably helps if you don't private message people AND post the same question...

    While first of all, it would have been much more useful to yourself if you had used proper English (moderators will not be happy with the way you write, you should work on it). And now about the problem: You should not have just deleted everything, now the only way( I think) to make your computer realize that the game is not still on the computer, would be to go into the windows registry, and try to erase it there. You could try to go into the control panel, and go to add/remove programs, try to find BG, and then click remove. Or you could just reinstall your operating system...but some of those things will be next to impossible if you are not computer literate.

    1: Improve your grammar.

    2: Reformat your harddrive.

    Before doing something rash like reformating your hard drive or reinstalling windows you may want to at least try to edit the registry. It is not as hard as you might think. If I remember correctly all you have to do is

    (1) Run regedit
    (2) open the hkey_local_machine, then software tabs
    (3) locate the entry for the game in question
    (4) right click on the game's folder and select delete
    (5) exit regedit
    (5) Reinstall the game

    My advice is that you should consider writing your posts in English.

    I would recommend a format C:

    Actually I can recommend a registercleaner, but somebody like you, needs something more easier to spell.

    format C:

    My final advice (if you cannot use format c:, bring your PC to me or accomplish any of the suggestions above): Use Hammer! A real one!
    Or if you give me your address, I can send you one (I have a really large one)

    Stick to helpful advice please everyone.

    AvenLord15 - There are some useful suggestions above, but please read the forum rules like you were asked to when you registered; it clearly states what is acceptable and what is not in a post.

    [​IMG] A school example of everything that should NOT happen in a post, right before me. This will be a treat.

    AvenLord15, http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/rules.htm lists the forum rules which you agreed to follow upon registration. Another rule you break off that list will result in a ban. For your convenience, I will dissect everything you did wrong in this post, and that is against our rules:

    1. Topic title was in all caps. (BTA edited it as I was writing this post.)

    2. Topic title contained "|33t" spelling.

    3. Thread itself contains "|33t" spelling.

    4. You write run-on sentences without any punctuation.

    5. Your post contains excessive punctuation at the end.

    6. Your post contains a signature.

    As for everyone else who replied with rule lawyering (I didn't get a single PM about this, as per forum rules), go read the forum rules immediately, especially this part:

    I consider rule instructions in public spamming, because no matter what you write, I or BTA will have to reply with a detailed explanation, or close a post, so you simply raised your post count by 1 with no other effect. If you want to be helpful, send a PM about it to me or BTA, and unless you have something on-topic to contribute to a thread, DO NOT POST!
