Have you uninstalled it from controlpanel/programs and features, or did you just throw the game directory in the trash?

he already said it wouldnt uninstall so he deleted, so DE4TH, i am so glad you have basic comprehension skills.

op you should not have done that, now you cant revoke that activation... also to your computer the game is still installed. try removing it in programs in control panel.

If what SlaveZerO posted doesn't work, try doing a System Restore to a point BEFORE you deleted the game wrongly. Then do a PROPER Revocation of the license and a proper un-install. IF you do not have a System Restore point, you will have to restore the computer to factory settings via System Restore. Let this be a hard lesson learned to NOT delete programs that way again.

the system restore does not have a complete backup of the game, system restore wont bring it back properly. you may need to remove some registry keys to fix it, but i ddont know which ones.

Only IF you revoke the license properly each time...Also, for Live there is a limit to how many times you can use the code(without having to go through tech support to revoke last code after limit reached)..Since you did not revoke and un-install properly, you are having problems now.

That's why I said if worse comes to worse, he *may* have to do a complete system restore-ie. where it puts the PC back to factory default status...?

And trying to uninstall it off control panel is same as uninstalling it off the game uninstaller.

You could try using an uninstaller program like this. In future though, use "start menu/ programs/ rockstar games/ Grand Theft Auto IV/ revoke licence" to uninstall.

Or just uninstall from programs and features and the revoke licence will come up.

You probably didn't delete all the right folders so the installer.exe might be somewhere on your PC, if its already there then it won't let you install from disc again
