  • can't start the game anymore?

    Soo i just had a virus last night, had to system restore to last week, it seemed to have gotten rid of the virus affecting my computer but it really screwed up my files? I had desktop icons removed and when i tried to launch all of my steam games they were all "unavailable", so i was forced to reinstall all of my games except for Crysis 2 because it was the only one which still ran perfectly fine.... weird.

    So i reinstalled bf2 but when i double-click the icon nothing happens. I've reinstalled it twice.

    Any ideas?

    My idea is that the virus damaged or removed some Windows OS files that the game relies on to play. Try running sfc /scannow and let it check the system files. It may ask you for your OS disk, so have that handy.

        System File Checker. You run it in your RUN bar. type in sfc /scannow. Its a utility thats part of Windows since XP for sure, may have been in 98.

                yes i had to patch the game to 1.41 and then to 1.5 for it to start...

                not sure why that is, probably for windows 7 support / wide screen support?

                  Hmmmm, maybe. thats kinda strange. Usually it just loads and you dont see any servers when you are not on the right patch.

                  Glad you fixed it though
