So, basically, I was trying to play the closed beta of a game that just came out. Unfortunately I keep getting this Gameguard error.


I don't know what to do. If you have any idea how to help, that would be nice. I figured I would try and completely remove gameguard from my PC and then try again. But, I've been told Gameguard is a rootkit and buries itself deep into your computer and it's VERY hard to get rid of. It's an Anti-hack component. So, I guess I need some professional help getting rid of it. If you actually know a fix that would get my game running, that would be even better.

On another note, there's this Gamevance32.exe running. I heard it was adware and I delete it's program files / stopped it's process. Is it gone?

I guess that's it. Just really want to play the game with my friends since it's only open for a few days. Tried all sorts of things. Restarting, disabling UAC, disabling avast, running in windows XP compatible mode, deleting gameguard folders and letting the game repatch them, reinstalled the game from two different official sources and still no luck. I'm convinced it's Gameguard and not the game.
