    I am VERY new to computers and have purchaced two games:Mafia and Postal 2, there are patches for the games and I have downloaded both.

    I think the Mafia patch worked simply by downloading it, but the Postal 2 patch didn't. How do install the patch?

    Thanks in advance for helping a noob.

    What is the name of the file(s) you downloaded? Specifically, what is the extension (the three letters after the . like .exe or .zip)?

    If it is .exe you just double click it and it should ask you for information about where to apply the patch if it doesn't auto detect. If it is .zip you may have to unzip it and apply the files yourself.

    I hope that helps....
