How to Reinstall Game Guard

By Irving Jeffries

nProtect Game Guard is a program designed to stop cheating in online games. On occasion, certain third-party programs or games can cause a program to be installed incorrectly, by incorrectly flagging a legitimate file as a virus, or using a resource the setup file needs to properly install the program. In most cases, a re-install of the affected program while disabling the process/program in question can fix the problem.

Things You'll Need

  • nProtect "Game Guard Personal 2007" setup file/media
  • Windows 2000/XP/Vista

Removing and re-installing nProtect's Game Guard software

Step 1

Locate your GameGuard setup file on your hard disk/media, and insert the CD/DVD or copy the setup file to your desktop. Click on the "Start" menu, and then left-click "Control Panel."

Step 2

Scan the window for the icon used for the removal or installation of programs in your version of Windows. This will differ slightly based on what version of Windows you are using. In Windows 2000/XP, click on "Add/Remove Programs." In Windows Vista, click on "Programs," then "Uninstall a program" under "Programs and Features" in Standard View, and "Programs and Features" in Classic View.

Step 3

Navigate the program list using the scroll-bar until you find an entry reading "nProtect GameGuard," "GameGuard" or "GameGuard Personal 2007," and left-click the entry. If you are using Windows 2000 or XP click on "Change/Remove." If you are using Vista, select the appropriate program entry then left-click "Uninstall" at the top of the window.

Step 4

After the uninstall is complete, lick on the Game Guard setup file to launch and re-initiate the setup. You should disable any anti-virus software before you begin the reinstallation. Follow the prompts to install the program.

Step 5

Launch the GameGuard software to test its functionality. If you are a subscribing customer, click on the "Register" button within the "License Information" bar that is displayed in the Security Center window to input your account information and activate the product.
