I suggest a complete uninstall/reinstall. First, uninstall the game (if you can). Then delete the entire game directory. Then delete the registry entry at HKLM\Software\Activision. Then reinstall the game. Make sure you don't install the game into the root of your driver (e.g. C:\); it needs to go into a subdir.

GlanzerThen delete the registry entry at HKLM\Software\Activision.

Then reinstall the game. Make sure you don't install the game into the root of your driver (e.g. C:\); it needs to go into a subdir. how can i access this registry entry? and, when i inserted the disc to reinstall the game, that was when i couldn't access cod. the error message popped up: COD MP 1.4 build win-x86 Apr 13 2004 ----- FS_Startup ----- Current language: english Current search path: C:\PROGRA~1\CALLOF~1/main File Handles: ---------------------- 0 files in pk3 files ERROR: No languages available because no localized assets were found ERROR: No languages available because no localized assets were found ----- CL_Shutdown ----- ----------------------- Hunk_Clear: reset the hunk ok Couldn't load default_mp.cfg. Make sure Call of Duty is run from the correct folder. that is the exact message. i cant make sense of it, can you help me out?

Uninstall your previous installation from add/remove programs and reboot, altering the registry can be fatal so be sure you know what is involved before deleting anything located here. Click the start menu and open the run command box, type regedit here and enter. HKLM is an abbreviation for HKEYLOCALMACHINE, you need to open this branch and scroll down to the Software branch, open this and find the Activision entry and right click on this folder and delete. Reboot and reinstall from disc, providing you have the ORIGINAL game disc it should boot itself into install mode, if it does not open disc directory by right clicking on disc icon and select open, then as stated above find the correct .exe to innitialise install. **PLEASE NOTE I AM AT WORK AND UNABLE TO CHECK THE CORRECT PATH TO THE COD INSTALL IN REGEDIT......ONLY DELETE IF SURE
