If they scan outside of the associated folders, you'll find it written in the EULA. If they do, and its not, sue them and get rich.

if in there privacy policy they said they will scan your hard drive and you accepted (only way to play any steam games) then yes they have the right to scan your hard drive

Its so easy to get info off peoples computers nowadays. Every single website you visit will put something on your computer. Often without consent. If you dont except the conditions. You can't visit the site. Paradox. Even when you have adequate protection companies will put tracking adware on your comp. To sell info to Big bussiness to "Better" sell to you and your hobbies.
OMG I mean I enter a site Ive never visited and they're like HELLO . . . FRANK (or whatever). Its just like 'Minority Report". Heck we evan have that Technolgy today.. scanner recognition for faces, eyes, apperance entering or exiting building. Even in the freakin malls. Try frequently deleteing cookies.
CS is worth even now 20 in my opinion, but next time go to a used shop and buy the code with disc for 5 bucks.

Steam has a very strict policy about banning.
(taken from http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...hreadid=138233 )

Quote:
*** I got banned?!?!
Your account got banned because VAC detected a cheat being used with your account. Period. It didn't make a mistake.

We will not un-ban your account regardless of the reason. It doesn't matter if someone else used your account, you didn't know what you were doing was wrong, your brother or sister downloaded a cheat you didn't know about, etc.

Use of your Steam account is your responsibility.

VAC may not ban your account immediately, the cheating violation may have occurred weeks earlier. That means you might have used a cheat, thought you were not caught, but actually you were caught. VAC just didn't ban you right away.
I hate to break it to ya, but I doubt anyone is going to reset your account. I dont know of one person that they have reset an account for.
