Did you install sound editting/cd burning software? Some programs like Roxio and Nero can not your computer.. not recognise.. certain files on a CD. Happened to me with Oblivion.

If your trying to explore the disc, why would it give you an error related to the program files folder on your C drive?

I didn't say use the CD autorun. I said explore the disc. In other words, go to my computer, right click the CD drive and press Explore. Or whatever it is in your language.

It's trying to autorun a game that isn't installed. The most likely cause of this would be leftover registry entries that the uninstaller "overlooked" when removing your game.

I'd suggest removing them using regedit but since you're reinstalling the game anyway there seems little point. Just navigate to D:\(or whatever the drive letter of your optical drive is)setup.exe. That will skip the autorun entirely, and the installation program should do the rest.

Click Start -> Run and type D:\Setup.exe.

Or, just type D:\, hit enter and find the installation executable. (NOT the autorun file, which is just a splash screen - or in your case an application that points the the game executable if the registry tells it that the game is installed) You can tell which program the autorun procedure opens by viewing "autorun.inf" and checking the filename of the program.
