I had E12 before and tried changing the read-only settings but they kept getting reversed back. I then did a clean install according too the CF Guide. This did not fix the E12 problem, so I decided too restore the restore point before I got this E12 error problem. So this fixed it and the files started downloading for that initial patching process. When I tried to launch MP once it became an option, it told me that it had a "Failure too create empty document" I am very tired right now so not going too have time too check soon.. going too try another restore point is what I am thinking.. but if anyone here can fix my problem at the point I am in, then I might not need too go further back.
I am way too tired too type up any of my specs and as for firewalls I do have one going however it has been on for long time and I could I suppose mess with it again tomorrow... but it is AVG free and hasn't given me trouble before. Win XP btw..
Anyway I am going too smoke my sleep cigooretta annnd pass out! Hopefully I will be in space by Tuesday night!
Thank you for reading and for helping if you do so!
