    first do u have the nvidia control panal in aa , af and mipmap level set to off or high performance ? also try setting the resolutions in bw2 to lowest settings also do you have 1 gig of memory . a recomendation would be update ur video card to a 6600 - 6800 gs Agp cards Nvidia or 9800xt - x850 pro Agp Ati . this will help smooth out ur gameplay

    I think that your GeForce is not strong enough to run all the options in the game, so so certain things are autmomatically disabled as your card can't run them. You can play but those options can't be run by your card.

    That is if I understood you question correctly. Which is something along the lines of why can't I configure the game to show flowers etc. in other words that option is not selectable.

    They will have probabaly said that you could play the game because your card does meet the minimum requirements, but never expect a card which meets the minimum requirements to run well.

    Let me give you another example. I have a X850XT which is a rather good card, however even with this good card I can't enable full shadows in games like F.E.A.R, AoE3, Serious Sam 2 etc. This is because my card does not have Pixel Shader 3 or HDR support so that would mean that I would not be able to even activate those graphic settings in the games. They will be greyed out and unselectable.

    This is the same problem you have. A minimum requirements card can't run the game the way it's supposed to be run.

    Use Spybot Search and Destroy and AVG.

    You could also try AntiVir.

    I don't have ICQ sorry.

    My email is available on my profile.

    Why are you trying to re-install Windows? I thought I told you to use those other anti-spyware and anti-virus program? Have you tried them yet?

    Don't know of any solutions, at the moment it looks like your olny option is completely reformating.

    Is that what you were trying to do? Or only to re-install windows without a format?

    I don't know much further now sorry. I advise starting a new topic with this problem, so that some of the other more knowledgable techspot members can help you.
