This is broken.
A software uninstaller on the Windows platform should be a simple affair, right? All the application needs to do is delete the files and registry keys, very simple. Well, when I tried to uninstall Call of Duty 2, it decided that not only did it need the usual bloated uninstaller that takes half a minute to load as it extracts temporary files, it decided it needed to VALIDATE the install before it could DELETE it. The process of validation took upwards of five minutes. So stupid. Somebody needs to be slapped.
