When I try to play Oblivion, I get a message telling me that there was an error installing Oblivion and tells me to un-install re-install Oblivion. This would not be an issue if the game would un-install. When I go to un-install the game, it follows the steps in un-install wizard and states that it is completely removed from the system. However, the game is still on my computer and refuses to un-install. Help please!!

Thanks

Hi

I got that message once before and I really hated it.:mad: There are several ways of trying to uininstall:
- Go to start/control panel/add or remove programs and uninstall oblivion from there.
- Email the take 2 tech support. (their details are on the oblivion launcher and when I emailed them, they told me to delete some registery keys, but I forgot which ones are oblivion. If you do email them, prepare for a long wait.)
- Insert your copy of windows and reboot the computer. WARNING- this will delete EVERYTHING on the computer and requires backing up of files, but is sure to delete oblivion. I had to do this method and it worked.
- Delete the my computer files manually.

Oblivions a great game. :)

Only attempt if you know how to do this (using regedit):

1. Remove all traces of Oblivion from the registry
2. Manually delete the Oblivion folder from your computer

And exactly how do you find 'all traces of Oblivion'?

in "regedit" do a search for "Oblivion" and remove the entries (there will be a few). I stress again tho : make sure you know what you're doing in regedit! Make a backup/export of your current registry to ensure nothing gets screwed up.
