1.) Put GOW CD in drive and allow to load.

2.) Exit out of the auto run window by clicking on “Exit.”

3.) Search the CD with the Window XP search tool for the “FirewallInstallHelper.dll” file. You should only get one result after a short while. Leave that window open.

4.) Now navigate to your System 32 folder in the Widows folder but do not open the contents of the System 32 folder.

5.) With your Search results still open click and drag the FirewallInstallHelper.dll file into the System 32 folder.

6.) Close all windows you have open.

7.) Run the GOW CD again and click on “Install.”

8.) You will get another prompt asking you if you want to uninstall all components. Click yes.

9.) You will get another prompt asking if you want to delete all other user content. Click yes.

10.) Game should install now and you should be free and clear.

    Thanks for your tip! But in my case, on W7 x64bits, I copied the “FirewallInstallHelper.dll” file to SysWOW64 folder in the Widows folder and, it worked. Finally, I got to completely uninstall all components of the game and run a new install.

Xbox 360 won't play one type of disc.

Are any of the disks new? If so you seriously need to call Microsoft and demand an explanation.

Not trying to make you look stupid, but just in case make sure they are gears of war for the Xbox, not for the pc
