    Thank you for contacting Midway Tech/Customer Support. Please see below for details about your inquiry to Midway.

    This key is fine. If you are having problems please ensure it is inputted correctly.

    If you still have problems, please follow the steps below to manually uninstall the game:

    Goto start > run > type "regedit" > click ok, and delete the following keys.

    Please be sure to follow the directory tree all the way to the Unreal Tournament 3 keys, as deleting the wrong key can
    cause damage to your system registry. Midway accept no responsibility for damage arising from deleting the incorrect
    registry entry.

    Hkey_current_user/software/Microsoft/windows/current
    version/uninstall/Installshield_{BFA90209-7AFF-4DB6-8E4B-E57305751AD7}

    Now the delete the following folders:

    If you can’t see this folder in Program Files, goto tools > folder options > view > and check Show hidden files and
    folders. You may also need to type c:\windows\installer into the address to see this folder.

    C:\WINDOWS\Installer\{BFA90209-7AFF-4DB6-8E4B-E57305751AD7}

    C:\Documents and Settings\*YOUR WINDOWS USER NAME HERE*\Application Data\InstallShield Installation
    Information\{BFA90209-7AFF-4DB6-8E4B-E57305751AD7}

    C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3.

    You should now be able to reinstall the game.

    If you have the demo installed, please ensure that it is uninstalled prior to installing UT3.

    Well after being Sleepy and editing the regersty on windows and really screwing it up lol. I had to re-install Windows OEM after reformatting my hard drive's and 2 hours of windows updates I reinstalled UT3 and to my suprised it worked. After playing for a little bit I dicided to reinstall GOW and did the wondows live updates right after words and now I can save in the game. So anyways I think all of the stuff is kinda (minus files from your doc) are saved in your system regersty for your save game data in Gears of war. I also tried to install a older sound card on my system to day for the use of MDI interface and I had to retype the CD key for UT3 so I thought that was a little odd too tell me what you think and thanks.

    Is this your CD-Key? Wonder if this means that the keys are still not encrypted and can be stolen again....
