I would have to plant that image somewhere to see the games explorer.
You're probably screwed then. Even with an image I doubt you will be able to retrieve that activation.

I really wish nothing would have 3rd party through Steam - I'd be much happier. The Stalker debacle really put me off as I was outta keys within hours of buying it and being sent back and forth trying to get them to reset it. Apparently no one could - Steam finally just refunded me the money from it.

I ended up selling my Mirrors Edge retail and buying it through Steam since it had no 3rd party DRM. I still cant play Far Cry 2 or Warhead through Steam. Waiting for them to remove the DRM entirely.
How do you go through activations so fast?

I've already used the image once and GTAIV didn't need to re-activate (but Vista did), Do you think it took my install credit without me knowing?
