Go to Start/ Install/delete programs, scroll down find the game and delete it.
If you delete the game on your desktop only, the game is still there.

I've just bought the Soldier of Fortune payback game, and have installed it on windows 7. is there any patch to make it run on windows 7? are there any other options to do this? thanks in advance


right click on the program icon (Soldier of Fortune) then click the option "troubleshoot compatibility", windows 7 will adjust the settings compatible with the games, a window will appear, click "start the program", should the program run, save the settings.

When I try to uninstall "Yahoo Messenger" there is message that says that I need to Open/Find Install.Log file. But the file is not in Windows XP. Should I try DOS?


First of all, DOS is an operating system on its own. It is not in Windows XP. Secondly, try running a search for the Install.log file. Without looking at the problem, I would say that it is just telling you that there is a log of the uninstall process. If it isn't letting you uninstall, run the search for the log file and go from there. Another approach would be to simply delete the Yahoo Messenger folder in the Program Files folder on the hard drive.

Cannot download adobe, (or any) files and get following message:


The problem lies in the Temporary Internet Files folder. Sometimes the index.dat file can become damaged.
If this occurs, you'll have to delete the index.dat file and restart your computer.
Then you'll be able to download files correctly again.
Follow the steps below to delete this file.

1) Open Internet Explorer.
2) Click on Tools, Click on Internet Options
3) On the General tab under Temporary Internet Files, click on Delete Files
4) Click Ok when it asks if you want to delete the files
5) Under the History section on the General tab, click Clear History, then click Ok
6) Close Internet Explorer
7) Log off the current user and Log onto another user account such as Administrator
8) Click on Start, Run
9) Type CMD and Press Enter to open a command prompt
10) Change directories to the Temporary Internet Files directory by typing the following command,
(substituting the correct drive letter and the word username with the correct userName).


cd drive:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Example: cd c:\Documents and Settings\Mark\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

11) type del index.dat and press Enter
12) Type Exit and press Enter to close the command prompt

Once the computer has been restarted, open a web page with a link to a download.

I just bought Soldier of Fortune Payback for my PC and my operating system is Windows Vista. When I tried to install it on my computer, I got an error message saying that installation was canceled due to...


Hi Kristi
Vista can be tricky with some installations even if the game says it's compatible. The first thing I would try is running the installation with escalated privelege. To do this follow these instructions...

1. When you insert the installation CD, an autorun screen will most likely pop up inviting you to install the game. Cancel this.

2. Go to my computer and right click on the drive that contains the installation CD. Choose 'explore'

3. A file list will appear listing the contents of the CD. Scroll through the list and locate the file that launches the installer. This may be called setup.exe or install.exe or something like that.

4. Right-click on the file and choose "run as administrator".

5. The installer should launch and hopefully the game will install OK.

If this does not work - you can also try updating your graphics card drivers. First - identify what type of graphics card you have. (right click the desktop - click on personalize - click on display settings (I think) - and note the name of the adapter. It will likely be either ATI Radeon or NVIdia GeForce with a number after it. Let me know what it is and I will get you the web address for your update.

Let me know how it goes.
