    Uninstall the game before you format your HDD and you will be able to reinstall it whenever you want and your 'activations' will still be left.

    Doesn't it piss you off even further that pirates don't have these issues?

    I don't know what version of Fallout 3 you have but I've never had it lock me out, and I've installed it at least a half dozen times without uninstalling first....

    I've installed Fallout 3 at least 4 times, on at least 2 different computers...

    Sounds like you shouldn't have been giving away your keys to all your friends.

    You're mad because you bought the game knowing there was install rules, didn't follow them, and are now getting hit with the consequences?

    *yawn*

    Rage threads are anti productive. We got your message. I'm sure if some of you need to you can find an "anti-DRM" thread around here.
