Recently I added some new cars to my gta san andreas game and everything was working great until one day I added the new batmobile(yes, the big black thing!). It worked fine but just made the game look a bit stupid, so when I tried to remove it I couldnt, eventually leading me to try and uninstall the game, just so I could put everything back the way it was before, but then I found the uninstall file was missing even when I go to "Add/Remove Programs" and I click on the game to uninstall it nothing happens at all.

Did anybody else encounter this problem or does anybody have any ideas on a solution to uninstalling the game, Ive tried nearly everything(I think!)

Cheers

Have you tried to reinstall the game, then tried to uninstall it, to see if that will replace any files that may have been corrupted?

Deleting the GTA folder in Program files shouldn't do any major damage anyway, despite leaving artifacts in the add/remove programs box.

It's probably some type of error in the registry. Do not try to go delete the error you might delete something of high importance and render your pc useless. You might as well just delete the folder in the program files directory and deal with it sitting in your Add/Remove programs list.

I had a similar problem. Delete your San Andreas folder from your Program Files and move the San Andreas User files to a safe location (assuming you want them). Clear the program shortcuts in the start menu. Finally to clean out your registry, I recommend Abexo Free Registry Scanner.

Its free and its fast and it really helps with pc speed and game performance, as well.
Finally reinstall San Andreas; I recommend you reinstall it in a different directory though. Good luck.

why cant you just repair it?
in the start bar, under all progs-san andreas, it will have the option to unintall/install it, and it usually has a new option that says to repair the program.
i dont know if i helped, but hey... :thumbsup:
