OK first of yep now we have a problem.


Although using P2P programs are not illegal, the files downloaded could contain potential infections. By continuing to use these programs will put you at a higher risk for infection. If you continue to use these programs GTG may not be able to provide assistance in the future.

Second since you have admitted to this there is a possibility to a infection that is causing some of the problem. I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

Well my thread is still being unanswered for about a week. So I don't know what exactly to do now!
I don't blame them actually, it's quite a long thread. They asked alot so I did what I had to do.

Anyway here's the link:

Post a new topic in the Waiting Room with a link to your malware topic and the original day you posted that topic. They are very busy and sometimes they miss a topic.

Hey,

I've done what he asked me to do and asked me if the game are now working but they're not. He still hasn't replied about it, but I guess he can't help me anymore. So what do you suggest?
Do I just lose hope and deal with it?

He is helping a lot of people so his response will come.
I can't help in that forum but i will ask the game Zeus where did it come from?
Is this Zeus Master of Olympus?

Yes it is.
It was from a torrent file. And I told you I only download torrent games if I can't find them anywhere in shops.

From our Terms of Use:

# The posting of links or references to warez or any other type of illegal software is strictly forbidden. By doing so you risk having your user account terminated without warning. We will NOT help anyone we suspect of having obtained their software illegally.
# We will not support or allow the discussion of any peer to peer (P2P) applications, except for their removal.

We won't be able to offer further support other than to help you remove the illegally obtained software.

I would suggest that you finish your topic in the Malware Forum and that you give serious consideration to removing the game from your machine. It's likely the root of the problem anyway...wouldn't be the first time someone downloaded a game with an unexpected payload.

I'm closing this topic, if you feel I have done so in error, please feel free to PM me for further discussion.
