    Can't play WarCraft 3 anymore !! Help me :(

    Ok well, hi everyone
    from now about 2 months ago, I reformatted my computer.
    But something weird happened : Warcraft and all my maps, campaigns and saves were still there.
    I don't understand why, but it was there, and still is.
    When I click on Start --> Search --> Warcraft
    It gives me everything I had before I reformatted it. So when I click on warcraft 3 frozen throne (icon on search), the game starts, but there's a problem : I can't go on Battlenet anymore.
    When I try to get on it, it tells me
    "There was an error writting to your hard drive while trying to download a file from Battle.net. You may ned to free some space. Please check your hard drive and try again." :mad:




    PLEASE HELP ME !!!

    I caaaaaaaan't !
    It's not in program list, when I get on control pannel and i select add or delete programs, I can't find it, and finally, when I put the CD of warcraft on my computer, It asks to install it, but when I do it, when it asks me to choose where to install it, It automaticly puts "C:\Program Files\Warcraft III", but when i accept it says :
    "A copy of Warcraft III already exists in this directory. Please select an other directory, or select Cancel and then unistall Warcraft III before trying to reinstall it."
    After that, if I choose ANY of the other directories, it says :
    "Unable to save unistall data file. Installation cancelled."

    Manually delete it or use the provided WC3 un-installer files (if there is one, I forgot.) Your WC3 is probably read-only + archived, too. You should change that first.

    Right-click on the Warcraft 3 folder and see if "Read Only" and "Archive" are checked off. If so, you won't be able to edit them.

    This is an old problem, its simply because your wc3 doesnt know the "direction" anymore, a friend of mine had the same problem, however he just formatted another time, but you should be able to play if u just make install it another place than the origin.
