Yeah I already tried that, even though it had to do with his game play not uninstall. That guy wasnt able to play the game cause he was missing a dx9 .dll file but our game played fine, we just cant uninstall it...
But anyways I still have the same problem...

I searched a bunch of posts but no one has really ever seemed to solve the uninstall problem

I was hoping I could find some help here...
Thanks though... :whistling:

Hi Kate, I had the same problem. Just reinstall the game. Don't let it autorun, right click the icon for the cd/dvd drive, select explore and doubleclick setup.exe. It should then install properly, allowing for a faultless uninstall when you next try. Worked for me

I have the same problem. Initially I deleted everything related to Oblivion because of mod issues, but I left it all in the recycle bin. I realized I could not uninstall the game, so I restored everything. Now I can play the game just fine, but it still will not uninstall and the reinstall step that somebody else mentioned earlier is not working. It really SHOULD be able to uninstall now, but it can't. Anyone have any ideas? (I attached the two warnings as pics).

I have to say I'm surprised Bethesda let such a major bug get through.

The reinstall worked perfectly for me, thanks streetspirit.
