The answer is, you CAN'T uninstall it by deleting the folder, you MUST uninstall it by using the uninstall button in add/remove programs section of the control panel.

Because you haven't un-installed it properly it still has all the data in the registry and the game checks the registry before installing. If it sees the relevelant keys there it assumes it is already installed and refuses to install again. You will have to go through and delete the registry keys from the registry that refer to BF, then it will re-install.

adding to what apoc kid said, to get to the regesrty type "regedit" in Run. but dont start deleting stuff that you dont know what it is, then you can really screw stuff up.
