I have recently tried to run the game F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assualt Recon), but after an OS upgrade, it no longer works. I got a black screen with no audio, and closed it with the task manager. I'm ok with uninstalling F.E.A.R. rather than trying to fix it because it is outdated anyway.
I looked in Control Panel> Uninstall a Program, but it was not there. I went to F.E.A.R.'s directory and tried to manually uninstall it, but I got the error:
The specified module could not be found.'
I downloaded the correct .dll and created that directory. I then tried to uninstall my game, but after double-clicking the uninstall .exe, nothing happens. I have scanned using Symantec Endpoint and Spybot - Search & Destroy and have found nothing. I used CCleaner to fix registry issues and cleaned temporary files from Internet Explorer.
Looking into this problem I have found many other issues like mine, only somehow different, like the folders '11' and '50' were different values. Others say that they had success right after placing the .dll in the correct directory. Some said that this is caused by spyware of some sort.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
