What if you dont install the game? Then you could just copy it cause the drivers wouldnt be installed.
Very nice!

So do I understand correctly that this StarForce copy protection mechanism is basicaly a rootkit? Copy protection or not, rootkits are evil and should be made illegal.

What is a rootkit? Also why is starforce on them since you can just dl an iso of the game, or bin file and have the game like you bought it.

This StarForce POS sounds like the same type of thing.

Make no mistake, any company that employs rootkit technology should be destroyed.

Then you had better download that StarForce removal tool to get rid of the rootkit when you're done with the game or if your system becomes unstable.

I ran it on my PC last night, I'm clean. Death to all rootkit makers. Vermin that need to be eradicated.
