    yes, downloaded a game blah blah, will be flamed don't care, but the main issue is

    whenever i double click the Setup.bat file, it'll come up with the 'Windows cannot find 'location of the setup.bat file'. Make sure you have typed the name correctly, and then try again, To search for the file, click the Start button, and then click Search'

    now i feel i've exhusted all ways to fix this, googled for hours on end, either it leads to nothing, confusing as hell or it just doesn't plain old work, or well gotta pay for the fix, BLEH.

    all i ask for is a solution, a guide to fix it, i don't care what it includes aslong as not a full reformat

    Possible Reason On Why This Has Occured:

    well i believe the reason is, and pretty sure it is, Spybot is blocking it, or it has blocked all .bat (batch) files completely

    i was doing something and then spybot poped up with a Allow Change, Block Change thing, and i was in a rush and just hit Enter, and it was alligned on Block Change, and after that none of the setup.bat's would work

    so is there a way to unblock it with spybot?

    or is there another way to fix it?

    just please, post a solution with a step by step guide if you can solve this problem for me...i've really had it with this.

    If the game has been downloaded through file sharing applications (P2P, torrents...), we do care and will not assist you with the issue. Please read the rules:
    If Spybot is blocking it, you're lucky it's protectiong your computer from a most likely nasty, and you should leave it blocked.
