This is what I said to the guys on the chat:

Okay well I don't remember when this problem first happened all I know is that I couldn't find a solution so I stopped playing for quite a while. So today I had an urge to play it so I pop in the CD and it didn't say install and I didn't remember it being installed but I tried clicking multiplayer and nothing happened. I did the same thing for singleplayer and the same thing happened. I finally go and click uninstall and it gets half way through preparing the InstallShield wizard and disappears. By this point I'm pissed and I go to Add/Remove Programs and next to Call of Duty 2 it didn't have a size which confused me even more. I went to delete it and the same thing happened.

So just read that and help me out if you can. Thanks :thumbsup:

If this were me, I'd do a search for any files/folders that were related to the game, and delete them. I'd then do a defrag, and run CCLEANER to help clean out the registry (those files that might be left behind by the game). I'd reboot and then try reinstalling the game.

If you have problems installing the game, do the above again, but before you install it, run adaware or whatever malware prevention/cleaning programs you have, then run a virus scan, unplug from the internet (unplug your ethernet cable, or if you're on dial up, don't dial into the net) and disable any firewall that you might have running, as both the AV and FW might prevent a complete installation.

I know that some people say that deleting a program file is bad, and I can't argue that point, however, I've been in the same situation as you and I've done what I said above and had good success with it.

Hope it helps!

Before you do what Steve says, which is sound advice, try inserting the disk, then either going to My Computer and right clicking your optical drive and clicking on run.

Sometimes Autorun doesn't work right. If the install starts running, it's quite likely that it will overwrite or remove any old files.

Make certain you agree to all the default file locations given unless you know exactly where you are sending them and why.

Good Luck!

If there is no size for the COD in the add/remove program utility, then there are probably remnants of the original installation left on your computer that are preventing the Windows installer from working properly. I would certainly not recommend using any registry cleaner unless you are extremely careful and ONLY delete files presented by it that you KNOW are associated with the game.Use the search feature of Windows Explorer to file remnant files and delete these. this may fix the problem, or at least let Windows Installer get far enough to give you error messages that might help us solve the problem.
