Hi wooster,

What operationg system have you on your PC?

Win 98/xp? Linux??

More specs on PC too please - CPU, mobo, directX version?

The more info you can post the better.

Have you got anti-viru running?
Did you clean your temp folder before installing?

etc. etc.

It may have become currupted when you installed it the first time. Try installing over it again and then unistalling.

WHEN I TRY TO UNINSTALL IT IN ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS IT JUST TRYS TO INSTALL THE GAME INSTEAD OF REMOVING IT.

hi try this
download this "jv16 PowerTools' then start it up then click on "registry tool" then on "uninstall menu" then scroll down to the game you want to uninstall put a tick in the box then click on remove at the bottom.Then delete it from the program files (on your c drive) restart and should remove for you you can get it here
click here
