Sorry your account got hacked - that's worrying that it was stolen that way.

How do you tell how many games you have, and the dollar value of your account?

Add them up individually with a calculator?

VAC bans are by engine, so if you got banned on the source engine, you wouldn't be banned on the source 2007 engine, and so on.

My Steam account got thieffed eariler this year but Steam (or whoever) managed to retrieve it for me without much fun. Probably because i acted early. The fact that it happenned is irritating. I found out when a couple of days after i activated Dirt 2 on steam and it would not log on to live properly, then when i was replaying Arkham Asylum, GFWL told me that my seriel was incorrect.

The nerve of some people

That sucks they could either guess or hack your account. Usually I only hear about those who have pulled a Redeemed. ::

I have something weird happening on stream. When I install a retail store copy of ANY steam game, it resets my system part way through install. For some games, I don't mind d/ling, but others are why I bought the retail copy, because a bd writer is still faster than a internet connection, unless you live in chattanooga.

They must have a petition process if your account is VAC banned. In the meantime, you can check to see if your account is VAC banned or not on this site:
