ok i joined here pretty much so i can get help to fix my game. I must play it... Here's what's goin down: I got oblivion last summer and played and it was working great...until i accidentally hid a bunch of files, many of which were games....oblivion being one of them...now oblivion won't work, as well as some of my other [completely unrelated] games. what's happening is when i start up the game, an error message pops up reading "oblivion launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close" It says either send error report or don't send, and i always click the ladder cuz i don't have internet to that computer. it's said that if you uninstall and reinstall oblivion too many times, it'll stop working and to run setup.exe to fix this. i'm afraid i might have so, i do, and then an error message pops up saying "go to the control panel to install and configure system components." I have the latest oblivion [english] patch, a brand new graphics card, and a good computer. I'll do anything if it'll work....any advice you have would help me so much.... thanx.
