i just installed gow on my pc and everything seemed to install correctly i haven't modified the game and it is a genuine brought copy ( which i got a while back ) when i try to play the game i get this message:

C:/program files (x86)/Microsoft games/ gears of war/binaries/wargame-g4wlive.exe: you cannot run this game with modified executable code. please reinstall the game.

i have tried re-installing but it didn't work, what should i do?

Try changing the time (http://forums.gamesforwindows.com/p/2067/15469.aspx). Then update it

Change the time back to current if you have patched it.

All the updates for it. See if theyre here (http://gearsofwar.xbox.com/AgeGate.htm). If theyre not here, you'll have to search in google. gearsofwar.com just goes round in circles

Well there's 2 here (http://www.gamershell.com/pc/gears_of_war/downloads.html). Patch 2 and 3. This by the looks of it is patch 1 (http://www.filefront.com/9146551/Gears-of-War-Patch-1/). I HAD the patches but deleted them. Since I play GOW 2 on the Xbox

Extract them then run them. Theyre exe files. Close the game before you run any of them
