If you own a copy of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and every time you fired up the computer, it starts to run some commands inside the Command Prompt (CMD) window.
So, how did this happen and why?
Turns out, there is a fcbd.bat file that automatically runs on the startup. A forum discussion suggests this file is a leftover after the game’s installation finished. It no longer serves any purpose, so it is safe to remove.
Deleting unnecessary registry commands is highly recommended since it could lower the probability of a computer getting crash with another program. Therefore, if you want to delete the fcbd.bat file, here is the tutorial.
