How can they accidently do that anyway? Shouldn't the boot.ini file be protected somewhat?

Don't they thoroughly test all patches they make? Wouldn't it be doing this to their computers also?

Um...I think the correct term for this is "I want my money back". lol. That is just screwed up. There is no excuse for such an oversight.

Not only is it screwed up but they actually have to go out of their way to delete this file. This file is a hidden file in the root of the boot drive (normally C:) and it has absolutely nothing to do with a game, let alone a patch for a game. Thus, there is NO reason for them to have even done anything that would come close to messing with the boot.ini file of the operating system.

This is just a fine example of sloppy programming. If I didn't know better, I would say this company was owned or influenced by Microsoft.
