Hello.. i have a problem

I managed (i have no idea how) to change my CD key so that now when I try to join a game I get 'Invalid CD Key'

The proggy that comes in the eReg folder with BF doesn't seem to work anymore either and I can't find my Disk 2 to try a reinstall

So I guess what I want is to be able to change the key in the registery or wherever it is back to my original authentic one. Anyone know how to do this? I am too scared to fiddle around with settings too much.. hehe

If this sounds wierd it is because I am copy and pasting an old post I made on this same topic.

Usually the only way that you are going to get your cd key stolen is if you download a hack or mod or some other gay thing from a bad site that has a cd key thief in it. Your cd key is stored in your registy here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Electronic Arts -> EA GAMES -> Battlefield 1942 -> ergc. All of your EA games keys are in that same place so by exporting that and sending it to ones self they can easily get all your keys in one simple place. Of course there are better ways then exporting it, but that is outside the scope of this post.

I agree with vulcan i tried to cheat the system. but i had to buy a copy. I have two computers. I got one copy from a friend(not burned just barrowed) installed on both. Could'nt jion the same server. so i bought my copy and put it on the other comput. and BAM no more invalid CD key crap.
