Even if you delete the profiles, you can still get them back by using Manage Accounts since they're all on EAs servers anyway.

You can even go to a friends house and load your profile. Thats why its on the internet.

Thanks MerrickDS. i will use the uninstall function then. but will it definatly make a mod like US Intervention work for sure. and if i do uninstall will the menu pop up after the intro asking wich profile to use. will my username still be there with my password or will there be something i have to do to get it back.

There is no guarantees that anything works. It is trial and error. You can always get your info back. As long as you know your name and password you can use it . if you installed the game to it's default location you can back up the folder that holds your name and settings. The location should look something like this i believe : F:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles . But don't be surprised if you try to play multiplayer after you use the mod and you get an error that doesn't let you play for modified content.

What i have suggested to some people is running it from a different location on the hard drive ( the mods seperate from your game) . Two different installs. Two different areas. One for mods and one for online play. Just make sure you know the difference between the two shortcuts :D
