Windows 7: can't intsall the sims2 back on

if you do a system restore, all programs that have been installed/uninstalled since the restore point will go back to the way they were at the time of the restore, you can get more information, and how to do it here: System Restore

obviously its down to you whether you do it, but i would recommend it, as if it doesn't work, i have another idea, but it kind of relys on the system being restored to a point where it was installed

hi vanriel, if you do a system restore, it won't delete any personal files such as music, unfortunately i'm guessing that by this point (its been a while) that a system restore will be more hassle than it's worth? if the sims 2 is uninstalled at the moment, then i suppose you can try Ccleaner: CCleaner - Home use the registry clean option (make a backup first just in case) i suspect this issue is down to the dodgy uninstaller that comes with all Sims games, i found when I had to uninstall sims 3 that it took me a good hour of wading through the registry to clear everything out

the easiest way, is to create a restore point just before using the cleaner (just type "restore point" into the start menu it will be the first option) then if everything goes Pete Tong (it shouldn't do.. but you never know) you can do a system restore either from your Windows disk if it leaves windows unbootable (and again... this shouldn't happen) or from in windows itself if you find something unstable/unusable. by restoring to the restore point you have just made, you shouldn't lose anything
Remember to reboot the computer after cleaning the registry to make the changes take effect

Hi anne, sorry if that wasn't very clear,

from your start menu, type "restore point"
an option should come up saying "create a restore point" click it, and proceed to make one, following the instructions on screen,
then run Ccleaner's registry cleanup option
restart your computer
