hello i started to load the sims 2 on my computer and it didnt finish loading, so i figured that if i couldnt play it, then i shouldnt use up the disk space, so i tried deleting it. but now it wont delete, even when i go into the ad/remove programs, it will not delete, i need some help so if anyone has some answers i would greatl appreciate them.

thanks,
mike

Hi mike,

have you tried rebooting and then attempting to uninstall? Some Windows processes may be using some of the installation files.

Also, you could try the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility which you can download here. You can use it to remove the program entries from the registry making it possible to remove the entry from add/remove programs and then delete the files.

Also, what happens when you attempt to install again using the disc? Do you get an option to repair, modify, uninstall etc?
