i reinstalled windows over the older version, it seems some of the older files might not of been deleted and worse of all every time i installed a game none work. Should i reinstall windows in a new folder this time? Or can the installing problem be fixed?
You should never install a full (ie non-upgrade) OS over top of an existing OS.
What version of Windows did you [re]install? I ask because newer versions (WinXP I know for sure) force you to format the destination partition before installation, so you can't actually install WinXP "over" an existing installation.
i reinstalled it and deleted everything completely this time. the only problem i am having is that when i install software i can never run the programs. when i open games it just switches from black to windows and freezes. what do i do?
