  1. Hi, I've got a weird problem, when I launched Doom 3 recenly, original version, nothing happened, I opened task manager and saw Doom3.exe and rundll32.exe, launched it again and the game worked. When rundll32 is not running Doom 3 wont launch no matter what, whats weird is that when launching Doom for the first time it doesn't work even though rundll32 is running, only when launching it again does it work and/or when I close doom 3.exe in the task manager, but that's because rundll is running already, it's like doom 3 is not recognizing rundll32 at first launch. All my other games works perfectly, this happened just out of the blue. Any help would be appreciated.

    Never mind, fixed it, it has something to do with the games explorer, gameux.dll, I just deleted the servicelocation folder under the "GameUX" folder in the registry.
