    Keep Having to enter CD Key


    This problem happened about 4 months ago and I have just been living with it but I am tired of it now.

    I have owned this game for a year now. My CD is valid and I never had an issue logging in before (except for those times where gamespy had duplicate ID errors, but are fixed now).

    One day I was backing up data from my server to my pc and I uploaded files from my server to my PC UT3 UTgame directory and not a empty folder by mistake.

    I ended up overwriting several ini's on my PC for my game with server ini's.

    I did not know the mistake until I tried to play the game and my graphic and music settings were all out of whack - meaning wrong.

    It took me ages to re-tweak my game settings to where I had them before (like visual settings, audio settings, crosshairs, HUD, etc).

    However one issue I never solved is that each time I restart my PC and then try and play the game, the game asks me for my CD key. I have to dig out the key and enter it to play. Then I get to the login screen and I have to enter my password. My user name is there but my password is not remembered for auto login.

    If I exit the game BUT keep my PC on or put it into hibernate and then when I want to play, it starts normally. But when I completely shut the computer down and restart or reboot, and I try and play, it asks me for the CD key.

    What file is it that is not working right? This is bugging the heck out of me now. I want to start the game as normal from now on without the CD key enter screen all the time.

    Can someone help please?
