After my computer was overwhelmed by spywares and trojans, I decided to do a reformat but I was worried that after that I wouldn't be able to play CSS since every new installation of CSS prompts me to activate my CD Key before the installation can continue. Is there any way around this?
I didn't make it!
Your'e installing it through Steam, right? With Steam, any games you register using the CD key or buy through their download service are permanently tied to that account. If you uninstall the game or switch computers, you can download the game again, even if you bought the disk version.
As long as you use the same Steam account that you first registered the game on, you should be fine.
So you mean when I try to install CSS again and steam prompts me for the CD key, I just need to enter it and it should work fine?
Thanks for the help :).
That's weird, because I've re-installed every steam game and steam about 3 times and never once got a prompt...
