No big deal - try and uninstall from the ADD/REMOVE programs in your Control Panel,
IF yu can't see the program listed there - go and get Reg Cleaner - clean the registry and it has also shows a list of programs isntalled on your computer. It is a very straight forward and easy to use program - so jsut go and delete what ever yu want from there.

Cheers

Its not about Ego or about Brains.... sometimes even the very best of us mess up!! while doing things we do tend to overlook things sometimes and wonder why things aren't working!!! and i am appalled at your reply that i saw in my inbox this morning. am not going to talk much about this as some ppl simply wouldn't understand.

Well since yu are having problems with this .. go ahead and delete the directory to which you have installed the software. make sure that yu then run some registry clean up application to clean up and remove all traces of the software installed prior to this.

Now you might ask how one goes about cleaning the Registry you might wanna try this software - Reg Cleaner Ver 4.3 By Jouni Vuoro. you can also try and get a trial version of REgistry Mechanic - and do a clean up.

If using regcleaner---then yu can also remove programs that no longer exist on your computer but do somehow show up in your add/remove program list in Control Panel.\

Well, thats about it!!! Hope this helps - and if it doesn't put another post here and i'll see what i can do to help your highness!!!

Cheers

Howdy:

Boot into Safe Mode.. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to c: drive >Program Files..

Find Sim2, right click on it and delete!!

Now, if you know disk 3 is corrupt, why don't you return it for a replacement or a refund??

Also, clean out the temp folder under c:/>documents and settings>"your user name"
