That's the standard settings when someone install the game for the very 1st time.. internet got improved but the client and its standard settings remain the same unless to have some knowledge and to change them.. What is unfortunately not always the case. So this remains a part of our duty to teach to all these new comers to ET or all those who don't have this knowledge. This is also one of the tasks that can help keeping ET alive.
yes.. everything from scratch.. Make a backup of your config file, your etkey file and your silent.dat file. Once done uninstall the game with Revo Uninstaller. After have uninstalled the game run CCleaner and proceed a "basic" cleaning and a "registry" cleaning. Reboot.. Re-install the game with this ET installer if it wasn't the case before. Once ET installed, put a copy of your backup files back in the proper places. Right-click on et.exe, select Properties, Compatibility tab, and there tick the Admin rights box.. Apply and then OK.
