Hello, 

I'm sorry to say that, but your installation is most likely messed up - completely. Your main problem is now to remove all your current installations. Can you try un-installing your games, with the System Control Panel ?

Because you formatted C:, some important "hidden program files" were deleted, and now your game is messed up. For the future, please don't do things like that anymore...

And yes, the next thing you should keep in mind is that you should actually BACKUP all your game downlaods, to a safe place, so that you don't need to re-download everything again.

Please let me know if you need more help, and I'll try to assist you along the way. Good luck for now !

Sorry to say that, but you completely screwed up your installation, by formatting C:; you shouldn't do this again in the future. If you want, please read the part about "TeamViewer", on this page:

http://www.games4theworld.org/contact.html



If you want to do that, please check back here sometime on the weekend, and see if I'm on the chatbox. We'll then arrange for a TeamViewer session, and I'll do a manual un-installation of all your games.

In case you're wondering: yes, I could also describe the steps here, but it's a highly complicated procedure, and I don't really have the time now for elaborate explanations now. If you don't want TeamViewer, you might have to google for how to manually un-install TS3 and the expansions.
