Hey, i used to play battlefield 2 pretty regularly on my machine, then one day, after a patch, or after messing around with some file or another, it stopped working, it was just being annoying, so i tried removing it through the add/remove programs, so i selected battlefield 2, hit remove program. Comes up with 'Preparing to run installshield bla bla bla bla' to uninstall it, the installshield loads up, i get about 1 frame of the fullscreen installshield window and then it cuts back to the desktop. When trying ot install the program the same thing happens, Install wizard opens up for 1 frame and then goes back to the desktop. So i just gave up and played world of warcraft all the time. I have installed and uninstalled multiple games between then and now, and now i really want to go back to playing battlefield 2 without having to reformat my PC, none of my hardware has changed, its just still giving me a split second of the install shield then going back to the desktop. Oh, also, even though i have manually removed all the battlefield 2 files, i still have 'battlefield 2' in my add/remove programs list, but it says that it is only taking up 12MB of space, so i dont know if traces of the program is still on my machine or what, im just getting really frustrated and would like some help. Thanks in advance, Johnny.
