    the folder would be in c:/program files

    use a reg cleaner like ccleaner there is a registry cleaner within the progfram

    run task manager

    look in the process option for the process, click end process

    BE CAREFULL WAT YOU CLICK ON!
    sometimes it will say setup.exe

    or BT2124.exe something relating to the game, if there is any just end task or by restarting the pc does the same

    but

    i would be patient with it... sometimes i have had games install a little bit longer than other when it appers not to be loading but does eventually

    i would restart the pc, click install and leave it for 15 mins to run on it own and see if it doe any thing,

    the game i believe also isnt a small game

    the Process Battlefield 2142 Keeps Changing names one moment it would be setB17A.tmp then it would be set29A5.tmp then it would be set305A.tmp
    i can't end process it Disappears after the splash Screen Disappears

    ok plan of acton :D

    u ready/?

    start pc in safe mode ( when pc is turning on , hold F8, select safe mode )

    install the game in safe mode in the same directory as the game is now

    then try and uninstall the game through add and remove programs,

    delete the folder too in my documents

    try runnning ccleaner again to clean the registry, or you can try and registry cleaner alone which is called funnily enough "RegCleaner" dlete any registry entries for this


    LET ME NO HOW IT GOES, you might be a very happy member :)

    Two more things to try. Try shutting off AV this can cause problems. Try installing this in compatibility mode for XP.

    you still must have some files left over

    check the C:/progrma files/ EA

    and dete the lot

    if you have delted the files, and deleted the reg entries there is no reason why this would happen

    re install to a diff location so if its c:program files/ea

    just add ea again c:/program files/ea/ea
