    What they told you?

    let's say (i don't suspect anyone here) that you get the game WAREZ. Then you mail epic and tell them that you've been banned like what just happened to bob9. All you had to do is explain the situation and they gave you a NEW RETAIL cd key???

    No not true, Epic has a database of all the retail keys and would know if it were not a real key, that is how they prevent you from playing online with keys generated by a key generator.

    Go to 'Control Pannel'/'Administrative Tools'/'Services'. See if the "remote registry" service is started. If so, double-click on it, click on "Stop", then select "start-up type" to disabled.

    Then you might want to run HijackThis (http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip), and once you get the report, copy-n-paste the full report to http://hijackthis.de/ - this will tell you if you have any malware in your system. Anything in the report that http://hijackthis.de/ doesn't recognize, search around in Google.

    Cheers.
