Is this copy protection system going to get any more convoluted?

Yes, in case you didn't know you need a second tool to remove the *null* entries which try to remain in your Application Data\Securom folder, even though you uninstalled Bioshock and this is just what we know about.

The tool to remove *nulls* is called Unlocker.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

"Note: The Revoke Tool will not remove SecuROM. It is designed to revoke a BioShock license from one computer for future use on another computer"

This was at the bottom of the Bioshock faq. Removing secuRom screwed my Company Of Heroes install so I have 4 Securom entries in my registry that must stay. My Company Of Heroes game was a year old but now requires internet to play since patch 2.101. Activation seems here to stay and is being added to old games. No matter, when it gets too complicated to PC game I'm taking up bowling. Bowling balls don't crash to desktop or need expensive upgrades or phone home.

Hurts more than a mouse when you drop one on your toe, though.
