When I try to reinstall it says " Transfer was aborted, attempting to retart, but it dosent do anything past that....


" An error (-5005) while running this setup, Please make sure you have closed any previouse other application if the error still occurs please contact your vendor at Riotgames.com "
^
That one happens when i try to launch the un install wizard, the top one happens when i try to install it :/

- Delete all traces of LoL Files and folders - Download CCleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner)
- In CCleaner, go to 'Registry' and scan for issues
- Fix all found issues, and be sure to make a backup when asked!

- Try reinstalling
- If it fails, go back into CCleaner, go to 'Tools', select League of Legends and select Uninstall
- If this fails, select League of Legends, select Delete Entry, then try to reinstall.

Man, this is getting serious.

MrStyx's suggestions should work, but if it still for whatever reason tells you that programs are running, try uninstalling it from Windows Safe Mode. It shouldn't have to come to that, but there's no way there'd be LoL-related running processes that interfere with the installation in Safe Mode.
