1st do you have a real copy of CODUO? If so it means that someone is playing on your CD key.... You can try to email activsion and see what they can do, but not to sure if they can! Later ~Snoop912~

You only have a couple of options here:

- contact activsion (don't forget to show prove that you bought the game: included a photo of your CoD set/maual/disks and the reseat and ask them for a new cd key - go back to the store where you buoght the game and tell them what your problem is and ask them if they can give you a new game. - buy an other copy of the game.

I would try contacting Activision first, then move on to the other two.

Stay away from filesharing progs/apps, I heard people can get cd keys and what not through them.:confused:

I highly doubt that sparks.

The only way a person could manually get a cd key for your game directly off of your computer would be to scan through your registry, in which case you have been hacked.

Sometimes when you don't disconnect from a server properly, the server won't get the command to disconnect, and you will still be listed on the server as a player. When you try to connect to another server, the game will see that your CD key is in us on the other server, and kick you.
