    Exclamation Changed Gw2.dat file to Gw2.exe won't change back HELP!!!!

    Hey guys I was trying to run that fix after updating the client were you need to delete the gw2.exe file and rename the gw2.temp file to gw2.exe. Here is the problem I accidentally did this to the 16gig gw2.dat file and no matter what I do to try and change it back it says that is is already running. I've try resetting my comp doesn't work. Scanning the Task Manager and there is no Gw2.exe apparently running. I even did a System Restore and didn't do a thing. Since this comes out in less then 24hour can anyone help me or should I start the download again!

    Cheers!

    Try making a copy of it to another folder, then rename it there.

    You could try booting in safe mode and change it.

    Could be a virus checker getting picky because it's an exe file and fucking huge.

    Boot into safe mode and try it there.
