    For those interested, command to check the status* of the driver in their system below.

    Open command prompt:
    Code:
    sc query secdrv
    * look at the line STATE

    This is exactly why I have such a love/hate relationship with Rockstar games. BOTH GTA IV and EFLC have what installed ? That's right, Securom. That is the main reason I just gloss over Mr. Leather's hardware reviews (although I love his case modding articles), because he never benchmarks GTAV. I hope some lawyers somewhere get a class action lawsuit up Take2/Rockstar behinds so bad

    I have dozens of AAA computer games that I can't play, because I am worried about DRM conflicts (I installed Devil May Cry 2 and Bioshock, then uninstalled them cause neither would play = DRM, plus they broke my Flatout Carnage installation). This is also why I wait to purchase games until their $60 MSRP is nothing but a fond memory for them
