Must have been a bad virus then huh? Well make sure you run a good anti spy program just to check you have nothing left over.. Turn off all background tasks and try again.. If that dont work check your trouble shooting section in your book that came with the game.. Because I have only seen that problem once and it we were thinking it was because of spy crap in the pc, after we ran our scans the game went in fine..

I think he already got rid of the virus by reformatting his pc... That happened to me once because I had a firewall/antivirus, turn them off, even turn off the WinXP Sp2 firewall if you have Sp2. And just for the being turn off all pop-up blockers that are installed on your pc. If the installation then runs fine you can enable them back on.

First off i would not receremnd saying

Also could be because i have a pirated copy

Well what i did was i tried 2 things and one of them worked. i installed it to a different plase (went to eagames insted of ea games) also i used a program called SmartClose (free) that shuts down all prossses for you and will reopen them afterwards when you want to. also it knows witch ones you should not shut down. well good luck.
