  • Check the box in the second prompt window
  • Delete the C:\Program Files (x86)\Heroes of Nerwerth\ folder
  • Delete the settings directory
    • LINUX: ~/.Heroes\ of\ Newerth/game/
    • WINXP: C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\My Documents\Heroes of Newerth\game\
    • WIN7: C:\Users\[user]\Documents\Heroes of Newerth\game\
    • MAC: /Users/[user]/Library/Application Support/Heroes of Newerth/game/
  • Download a fresh installer from: http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/download/
  • Install, start HoN and try to replicate the issue

NOTE: It is wise to change the location of your installation when re-installing the game. Instead of the default location in Windows, you may consider C:/HoN
