    what? you hate Civilization?? :(

    Anyways, you can just delete the folder it's in. I think it's in Faraxis folder. I'm not too sure what that error is though

    If Youre trying to set it up in win xp, it is not compatible, so wont run.
    and yes you can just delete the folder.

    I hate civ because i cant uninstall it. I think something got messed up. It;s really annonying me,what id really like to do is repair it. Sadly none of that works. And when i just delete the atarti folder its still in the add and remove program files. THat just brings me back to where i started, how do i fix it???

    Have you tried to reinstall it on top of the game?

    Also it will show in the Add-Remove programs when you delete the folder. If you choose remove again, most of the time it will tell you its not ther and remove the listing.
