OK maybe it’s me being really thick here or it’s just not there? I cannot find the players/profile/save file within COD4 on Windows Vista 64-bit for the life of me. The profile has to be somewhere to save the levels I have already completed. Why do I need to find this is because I need to reinstall my OS and want to back this up so when I reinstall the OS I can just pop this back into place?

What gets me is the fact there is no sign of it anywhere... I’ve tried everything from, hidden files to searching for the files everywhere I can think of and cannot locate the save file.

Can somebody help?

It looks like you're missing the "players" folder which contains your profiles. Here's a screenshot of my CoD4 folder in Windows Vista x64.

Thanks to Vista UAC and security, it may go in the Virtual Store witch is located here:
C:\Users\%YourUser%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\players\profiles\
Try to find that you the end user that don't know about Vista Security...
