To selected,

Further add to what Wom has said make sure when installing patches to turn off your antivirus software. Now follow the below to uninstall and reinstall. I have also include the guide for saving all the files to be able to replace them after reinstall.



GR Uninstall

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders

1-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/red storm entertainment

2-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/UBI.com

To start from scratch uninstall all of GR and UBI and at your own risk do this but first back it up.

(1) start/run and type this: regedit and press ok

Up the top click file/export and on the pop up window down the bottom where it says (save as type) click the drop down arrow and click on ALL FILES. Then select your location and save.

repeat step (1)

1- hkey_current_user/software look for any red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft folders

now do this:

2- hkey_local_machine/software look for red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft and UBI soft entertainment folders and delete

now do this:

3- hkey_LocalMachine/ software/ Microsoft/ windows/ current version/ uninstall directory there should be a folder here named "{D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787}" with some Ghost Recon info in it so delete only the ghost recon related info.


Save GR Games

start/all programs/ accessories/window explorer/c:drive/programes file/red storm entertainment/ghost recon

1- Save folder inside data is used for saving your
keys for the game that you have set up.

2- Go into your mods folder, and take out the save
folder from MP1, MP2, and Origmiss.

3- Once you reinstall, just put these back in their
respective folders(overwriting the new ones) and
you'll be set.

Also copy all the files with the .xml extension and the missionstats.htm on the ghost recon folder.

If after restoring the saved folders/files, ghost recon don't work as expected (this can happen if you change the hardware after the backup), delete the options.xml in the ghost recon folder. Then start the game, go to the options and re-configure as needed

GR saved games after reinstall

If you backed up to CD after restore you have to access the properties of the files you had backed up and uncheck the read only option.
