This version of SecuROM ain't too bad. It just won't let you INSTALL the game if you have a CD/DVD/HD mounting program etc running. Just don't have those programs running.

That's not true either. I have daemon tools running and it's worked fine.

This securom hasn't done anything to me at all... but I hear the more invasive versions can cripple computers.

98% of people copy other people's signatures and paste it as their own.
If you are one of the 2% that doesn't, copy and paste this into your sig.

Don't worry, its the old version that doesn't cause problems. Its only the newer version that people are complaining about and its what most are referencing to when they say "securom"

All it does is makes sure you aren't mounting a .iso (which would mean you pirated it)

I'm talking about during installation, you cannot have those programs running. After, you can.
