    The update should take a while considering it being over 500mb but I'd say you guys should have faster internet speed over there.

    GFWL is crap, that much is known, but I think it's not the only thing to be blamed here. Your impatience and lack of attention to details is too.
    Why? Stolen password? Pretty sure you can talk it out with Steam Support.
    What for, lol?
    So, one game gives you problems and you blame the whole industry? Good for you. Anyway, serves you right for thinking Microsoft lets you use their services using the competition's accounts. You should have removed the license from the account first and then delete it. Such impatience.
    Education comes before games. Get your priorities right. Microsoft's support isn't the best, but it works if you're stubborn enough. Try again, be an angry costumer. Bitch to codemasters too.
    Couldn't you change the accounts without deleting one? I mean, if you delete an account, without revoking a game licensed to it, I think the game would still be locked to said account.
    Taking time is one thing, screwing up accounts is another.

    i would have removed the liscense if it showed up. the main reason for deleting is because i couldnt see the liscense there!

    also my net is borked. currently on some card.

    bought a copy of dirt 3.

    got it.

    installed.
    used my gmail for xlive (it recognised it as an xlive account)
    starts to update GFWL.
    restart and run game.

    updates again.
    and again
    check my account on the net. looks like the game didnt show up.
    del account.

    reinstall OS and game.
    install latest GFWL
    use new hotmail acc for live.
    enter key for game.
    "this has already been activated to another account"
    try using deleted account
    "this account doesnt exist or the password is incarrot"

    you deff need to use the orig gmail account now then since you registered it to that address imho

    and i had similar issues with starting it ,it wanting to update but not updateing then not letting me sign in/play and it was to my embarrasment a firewall issue i turned a fair bit of stuff on to get it working so not sure of specifics but im sure i had to allow a few things that wernt automatically in the exceptions list also

    i dont think hotmail is specificully needed , i used yahoo.mail

    you probably just deleted that sign in id off your computer and not the id from windows live, put the details for it back into gfwl marcketplace ie username and pass and it should refind that account imho

    if you can recheck what password your entering ,get them to email it you and if that account has gone awol fully get in touch with gfwl and codemasters they can sort this out id imagine

    Not that I know of, no.
    But I found this. I know it doesn't help much, but you could try to re-activate your GMail account, assuming google also has that 3-6 month system.

    Yeah, I was going to recommend codemaster's forum, but I think they aren't really answering to anybody there.
    But I can also predict the response on facebook will be something like: "We are unable to help you. Please contact Windows Live support."

    By the sounds of things I knew it was going to end up being a call to MS.

    I had not had this kind of experience with GFWL.

    Never used keyboard in DiRT 2 or 3.

    Did notice a difference in handling between DiRT 2 and 3 with a Logitech Dual Action controller.

    Might see you in MP some time.
    2-3 hours from now, multiplayer should be relatively active.
