I haven’t ranted in ages. So now is the time for my sounding off!
My PC was once infected with SecuROM and we were no longer able to even backup our files (yeah, just back up our files, pictures, documents, suchlike) onto CD because SecuROM decided that anyone who wants to burn a CD is automatically a pirate and a crim. Stoopid load of rubbish EA.
Awesome quote from muridae @ MATY:
As I understand it, you only get the uaservice7.exe service installed if you’re running Bon Voyage under a limited (non-Adminstrator) account. SecuROM needs that service to give it administrator-like privilege in an account that shouldn’t have that, which to me is one of the more worrying low-level activities it gets up to on your computer.
Okay, rant over. Here are a few links for those who want to rant, or who might need a lil more convincing as to why SecuROM is NOT good for your PC. In fact, it is not even good for the publishers who stick this s___ on their customers’ PCs, and it’s about time they realised it.
