The other day I was playing CODMW2 for PC multiplayer online, the auto-matchup made me join some kind of modified server game. I quit immediately however it seems to have messed up my COD install.

Now when I try to play a game the small map that usually appears in the upper left of the screen now takes up 1/4 of my screen, some x,y,z coordinates appear in the upper right of the screen, and the cross hairs for my gun(s) have disappeared.

Any idea how I can reset these changes, or do I need to reinstall COD? If I reinstall is there anyway to prevent autojoining to these modified versions of COD?
