    i have done that already....infact i have searched for the files with the relevant name and deleted all of them...the only problem is refuses to go from the control panel add-remove programs..and when i try to install the game again it gives me only the uninstall icon since it thinks the game is installed

    Search your registry using regedit32 for files related to the game (name, etc) if you find a registry key, delete it.

    PS: Back-up your registry first.

    Let me know if there are any problems with the URL.

    If the worst comes to the worst back up ALL of your files/folders/sw ect and format your HD *hard drive* and start all over again.

    Since you are using Xp I would try a restore point that was a day before you installed the game. it has worked for me in the past if that does not work Wiping the Hd is the last thing I would do hope that helps ya

    Just blow it out of the registry (back up the registry first.) Ihave found that on occasion regedit32 wont do the trick so I useualy jsut go with regedit. Do not wipe the hard drive.
