K its simple i formatted my C drive to get rid of virus's buggered up system files.

Now when i have got it all setup and all stuff reinstalled and things running smoothly i cant run any games.

Now i figured this would happen but my bro did the same thing and it worked for him.

So what am i missing?

Do i need to reinstall them all or can i adjust the reg or do i just have to run them for them to work in which case why else are my gaming not running?

this happens if you have two drives, in my case C and D:

my OS is on C and my games are on D

what can happen is the games put settings, game records and other files in the my documents on C, and if you dont back that up then it completely messes up the game

I backed up my save files application data and anything personally important but the games still wont run is it just about the registry?
